Ocelot began in 2020 as an Instagram page and a plethora of extra time. Pandemic time; that is. Pastries out of our tiny Cleveland apartment kitchen transformed into a home bakery operation in Akron, Ohio. After acquiring a few wholesalers and wrapping up a farmers market season in Medina; growth was inevitable. Ocelot, previously known as Plates by Post, took on its retail form in 2022; taking over the previous Richfield Gourmet Cafe space off of Wheatley Rd. Plates by Post completed its transformation into Ocelot Cafe & Bakery in November 2022 with a full rebrand and sign change.
We specialize in handcrafted breakfast pastries, desserts, lunch sandwiches, salads, and soups. With scratch-made bakery & food being our main attraction, we don't actually roast any coffee beans in-house. We do however carry & serve coffee from
8 - 10 different roasters out of northeastern Ohio. Bulk beans are available for purchase & ground to preference. Consider this a tour de coffee smack dab between Akron & Cleveland.
We hope you'll join us to have a cup of coffee & catch your breathe.
