New Bern North Carolina Coffee Shop and Bakery
The Rueda Family Business
"Mayte Rueda and her son Edwin make perfect business partners. She has a natural creative ability and he is excellent at numbers. Together, they have opened Mayte’s Sweets Patisserie and Café at 901 Broad St. in New Bern.
The bakery sells Italian coffee, cakes, cookies, macarons, tarts, custards, cheesecakes, cream puffs Charlotte cakes and various other sweets, which are all made by Mayte. Mayte earned her degree from the University of Hawaii and her Pastry Art Degree from the August Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. “Every two years we were moving and as diplomats, we entertained a lot of people,” Mayte said. This is where her love of cooking and baking was an exceptional asset to her and her family. “I worked at the New Bern Country Club as a pastry chef, then we moved. Then I was just baking for fun. Baking was more of a hobby, not like a business,”"
