The Art of Pastry: Bunfully Delicious

Bun Appétit brings the French pastry concept with a whimsical twist in a donut form — created by Lydia Choi, graphic designer and lover of pastries and coffee.

The inspiration behind Bun Appétit has always started with home: the Bay Area. I wanted to bring something special to our diverse community that I’m deeply rooted in. My background in graphic design may seem unrelated to pastry, but conveying conceptual exploration and feelings in a visual way is what I wanted to translate into pastry.  

We use quality ingredients to craft art that you can taste; our seasonal flavors and new products are curated through methodical research and planning. I draw a lot of inspiration from my Korean-American heritage while introducing other cultural flavors. Hearing about customers’ flashbacks down memory lane motivates me to keep raising the bar.

Our team strives to deliver delightful and unique products paired with a personable experience. Each of Bun Appétit’s flavors has distinct and colorful personalities of its own. We invite you to become acquainted with each one!
