EUGENE, Ore. -- While many celebrated Easter on Sunday, others still had to work on the holiday bringing in more business than usual for one Eugene bakery.

KEZI spoke with Catherine Reinhart who is one of the owners of Sweet Life Patisserie off of Monroe Street in Eugene.


Reinhart said Easter is one of the busiest days of the year for her bakery. Behind Christmas, Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, she said Easter is one of the most popular times of year.

This year they ordered more inventory and increased staffing for the big rush. Reinhart said they have sold more than 75 pies, a couple hundred cakes and 150 hot cross buns this Easter weekend alone, and had lines outside the door.

"Sometimes the line can be a little intimidating,” Reinhart said. “Sometimes it can actually stretch all the way to the front door. Our counter staff is amazing, it's a really efficient system and the line moves really quickly."

She said for Sunday's holiday they made various Easter themed cakes and pastries. 

Sweet Life Patisserie is open nearly every day of the year. The only days they are closed are on Christmas and Thanksgiving.
