Wentworth & Fenn is an all-scratch bakery specializing in Custom Cakes, Pastries, and Artisan Bread.
Samantha Allen is the owner/executive pastry chef. Formerly the executive pastry chef at The Fig Tree Restaurant, Allen was nominated for Best Pastry Chef in the South East Region - James Beard in 2017 and Best Pastry Chef in Charlotte via Charlotte Magazine. Allen decided to pursue her dream of opening her own concept. Thus, Wentworth & Fenn was born.
Wentworth & Fenn (the name) is Charleston inspired. Allen hopes to open a second location there one day.
The bakery started small doing pop-ups and private orders. The "first" storefront was imagined and built...but it wasn't your average storefront. A 1961 Shasta Camper was brought to fruition. After two years of serving pastries at pop-ups and out of the camper, Allen decided it was time to move operations into Charlotte (formerly Concord). Camp North End became Wentworth & Fenn's new home. Moving into the space right as covid started taking off, Allen had to pivot to make it. After two different phases and one remodel later, the bakery is what you see today.
The bakery is tiny but mighty; six employees and Allen run operations. Pastries, cakes, breads, private orders, and more.
