Readers and food lovers! We just wanted you to notice that this post was written early Wednesday afternoon, and Se7enbites statements were made even earlier – 9 a.m. The shop has changed their opening plans and clearly has no desire to put their employees at risk in the face of the developing storm. Here's a newer message from Trina, from very early Thursday morning:
Let me make this crystal clear
We would NEVER put our staff or our customers at risk.... Clearly this will give us a delay of opening .....
We've worked too hard to let this storm put a damper on all the fabulousness we've made for all of you!
So it's another day.....
As long as we have power on Saturday we will consider cooking for people who may not ......this will be our service to the public
Follow the storm as we do as ... We will be here when it's over with smiles and hot biscuits!! Be safe everyone!!

Bubbly pastry chef Trina Gregory-Propst assures us that the grand opening of the new Se7enbites Bake Shop space
is going forward as planned Friday morning, hurricane or no hurricane.
"Hurricane or no, I'll have biscuits ready!" she posted on the shop's Facebook page today, adding that her wife and business partner, Va Propst, "can't wait to smother gravy" on those biscuits.
If you've ever had Se7enbites biscuits and gravy, you already know how inviting a prospect that is. If you haven't, the new space at 617 N. Primrose Drive is plenty bigger than their tiny former shop, so it will be easier to squeeze in and give it a try.
They plan to have a full savory menu in the new space, but Gregory-Propst told us they will only have breakfasts (all day) and sweets during that first weekend, so it's more of a soft opening. "Everything will be back to normal – and better than normal – next week," she says. "We anticipate being able to have our first mimosa and beermosa brunch!" Yasss.
