Teal House Coffee and Bakery, born from owner Lance Phillips’ popular homemade cinnamon rolls, is now open. The family-run bakery truck is located at 1716 East Slaughter Lane, found at Duke’s Adventure Golf.
Teal House serves cinnamon rolls (including a gluten-free kind), croissants (regular and chocolate), and kolaches (one with cream cheese, another with sausage and cheese). Phillips also plans on hosting weekly pie nights on Fridays from 5 to 8 p.m. (with a menu of apple, blueberry, banana cream, and key lime whole and by-the-slice). The pies will also be available for Mother’s Day. The trailer also serves coffee drinks like cortados, flat whites, and salted caramel lattes.
Phillips “fell in love with Cinnabon, but [was] on a college budget,” so he started baking his own cinnamon rolls. He expanded his repertoire to an apple pie that won the neighborhood baking contest. Then he became known as “the cinnamon roll guy,” and started receiving orders from neighbors, and thus, Teal House Bakery was born.
The bakery gets its name from the color of the Mueller house in Mueller that the family of seven lived in when they originally started selling their baked goods (the family has since relocated).
Teal House started as a way for his daughters to raise money to go to Disney World (Phillips called it “one of the best family vacations to date”). The family is already planning a second trailer and hopes to open a brick-and-mortar location.
Teal House provides table seating at Duke’s, and is open 6:30 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 8 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
