Audrey Hermes – Woman-Owned Business

My name is Audrey Hermes. I live in downtown San Diego and spend most of my time in Little Italy. I was born and raised in a small town in North Dakota, and I attended college in Salt Lake City, then moved out to San Diego after graduation. My husband and I own Frost Me Café and Bakery in Little Italy and are proud supporters of our community. My love of people, being creative, and overcoming obstacles is how I ended up at the place I am today. In my free time, you can find me walking the beautiful harbor or enjoying the amazing food that makes San Diego a wonderful culinary hub.

About Audrey Hermes

Q: Please tell us a little bit about your family.
I currently reside with my husband Jon, two cats Wolfie and Chico, and our turtle Henry.

Q: Please tell us about your current, past, or future career. What do you love most about what you do?
I have spent my whole life working in the restaurant industry. My mother also was in the industry and I would listen to her stories about her work, how to treat guests, and so on, so I guess it has just always been a part of my life. In 2009, I decided to start a little at-home bakery, mainly for fun and I didn’t take it too seriously. After graduating from college and moving to San Diego I decided to make a go of it and get a business license, and that is when Frost Me Café and Bakery was born. Our bakery is located in the heart of Little Italy, in the Piazza Della Famiglia, and we couldn’t be more proud to call San Diego our home. What I love most about what I do for a living is the people of our community that I have the pleasure of serving. San Diego and Little Italy have such a vibrant mix of people of all ages, and backgrounds and I just love being a part of it.

Q: What advice would you give to people?
I guess that is a pretty open-ended question, it depends on what subject it is. Overall, what I would say is to always send out good intentions into the world, and be kind to one another.

Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years?
My goal is to travel more. I visited Europe for the first time last year, and now I have the travel itch. I hope in the next 5-10 years wherever my homebase may be, I can look back at my travels and everything I have learned from other cultures.
