Where we come from

You may remember the original Foley’s Bakery that operated from 1997-2002 at 431 Congress Street. New owners Dan and Andrea Swanson now run Foley’s Cakes at 1 Monument Way with the same great cakes, just a different name and new location.

Chef Ed Foley is a Pastry Chef who trained the new owner, Andrea Swanson, and has been a friend and mentor to her for over 15 years. Andrea has worked in restaurants and hotels in the Portland and Greater Portland area for over 20 years learning the ropes and honing the skills she acquired working with her mentor Ed Foley. As Ed looked to the future, and made the decision to sell his gourmet pastry shop, Andrea was first on his list to pass the baker’s torch, and she jumped at the opportunity. Her main goal is to provide the same quality service and products that you’ve come to love and expect from Foley’s. Her second is to entice you in to try her own creations alongside the favorites, so save room! All baked goods are made on the premises with top quality ingredients.
