Hoffman’s Fine Cakes & Pastries held a ribbon-cutting event on Jan. 22 at its new location

Hoffman’s Fine Cakes & Pastries held a ribbon-cutting event on Jan. 22 at its new location, 16175 Cleveland St. in Redmond. Pictured are wife-and-husband owners Eugenia Velez and Carlos Covelli, bakery manager Janis Resler, bakery employees, Redmond City Council members John Stilin, Angela Birney and Kim Allen and OneRedmond investors.

Hoffman’s was located in the Kirkland Parkplace shopping center for 31 years, and due to construction there, they have found a new place.

“We’re so grateful. Customers have come in and said, ‘Welcome to Redmond. We’re excited for you to be here,’” said Velez, who moved from Colombia with her husband to the local area 15 years ago. The duo became Hoffman’s owners 10 years ago.

“We’re hoping to be here 31 years more,” Velez said.
