About Us

Established in 2018, High Octane Café & Bakery specializes in providing the highest quality baked goods and donuts in a modern upscale automotive themed environment. High Octane Café provides unique breakfast and lunch items – breakfast stuffed bagels, breakfast tacos, loaded tots, loaded curly fries, and stuffed cookies. Unique cookie varieties include banana cream cookies, Oreo stuffed cookies, and hazelnut cream stuffed chocolate chip cookies to name a few. Custom and large orders are accepted with prior notice.

The automotive theme came about by combining two passions – cars and food. Considering the proximity to the “Motor City” and the number of automotive enthusiasts in the area, it seemed liked a logical pairing. Cars & Coffee events are held onsite. Saturday mornings are open themed and Sundays are theme specific. See Cars & Coffee Events page for additional details.

After 5 years in Bloomfield Hills, we moved to a bigger and better location in Waterford. We are looking forward to growing our business with the return of weekend car shows!
