Jon and Amy Arnold are ready to give the Sequim community their own twist on homemade baked goods.

The husband and wife duo lived in Portland for many years before they moved to Sequim in September and recently opened Two Spot Bakery at 173 West Bell St. in Sequim.

The bakery opened for business on Nov. 19 with hours from 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Mondays.

“We kind of fell in love with Sequim,” Amy said.

After Bell Street Bakery closed earlier this year, the Arnolds said the vacated space came with the baking equipment making it a perfect opportunity for the couple to start their own business.

Amy is a baker of 16 years and has a background in pastries, baking cakes and cake decorating. She started baking as a hobby and got her first shot as a baker after her first year in college at a coffee shop where her sister was a barista.

“I never considered it a career,” Amy said.

“We’re really lucky to get a chance like this with a startup.”

Amy says with her own business, she is able to interact more with customers and get to know what the community is looking for when it comes to baked goods.

Jon has experience working in the hospitality industry and manages the business while Amy bakes.

The couple says they “plan to stay small and grow as we grow.”

Two Spot Bakery — named after the couple’s cat — offers a variety of breakfast pastries, such as orange cinnamon rolls, fresh baked bread loaves, and some vegan pastry options, as well.

So far, the couple says their favorite item on the menu is their sourdough bread.

Jon and Amy say they are still perfecting their sourdough starter, which is flour and water, and the yeast picks up flavors from the air giving every sourdough loaf a different taste depending on the location.

The bakery also offers several types of bread, such as a sesame bread, baguettes, ciabatta bread, and more.

Amy says she is still getting feedback from customers and she also hopes to add some gluten free options to the menu in the future.

The owners say they plan to offer their products to many of Bell Street Bakery’s previous clients, such as Nash’s Farm Store, Sunny Farms, Country Aire in Port Angeles and the Longhouse Deli and Market in Blyn.
