About Us

The Quirky Feather is the brainchild of two local sisters, Heidi & Sabrina.  It was their childhood dream to open a bakery together. After taking some divergent paths, they got together to make their dream a reality. Sabrina finished pastry school, and Heidi was ready for a challenge. They noticed the need in the area for something that was open later than the average coffee shop. Somewhere people could gather with friends and family, a comfortable place to study,  or just plain relax. Together they came up with the Feather: a place that would serve sweets, coffee, and cocktails. Thus, The Quirky Feather Confectionery is a confectionery & cafe, with a full liquor license.
