Gracious Thyme

Author David Eggers said, “Books have a unique way of stopping time in a particular moment and saying: Let’s not forget this.” Like your favorite book, a Gracious Thyme event is not to be forgotten. We have had the pleasure of serving bookworms, bibliophiles and bibliosmiacs at The Strand Rare Book Room for many years. From cocktail parties to weddings and anniversary celebrations, we provide delicious food, impeccable service and a shared love of literature.

Gooey & Co

Gooey & Co is inspired by a curiously distinct cake that originated in St. Louis, MO in the 1930’s. Gooey Butter Cake is still a St. Louie staple, and hard to come by just about anyplace else. Perfect in the morning with coffee or for celebrations, our cakes are crisp and flakey on top, light and fluffy on the bottom, and perfectly gooey in the center. Gooey&Co craft’s cakes from original recipes, using only the freshest, all-natural ingredients, and serves them in our signature bite-size “Gooey Bits”, the perfect one-and-a-half-inch square bite. Available in a variety of flavors with multiple serving options.
