The Team

Emily Han-Young Hurd
Pastry/Creative Director (Owner)


Emily is an eclectic creative whose interests would not stay contained within one field, so she designed a cafe that could house all her passions -- pastry, film, creative writing, building, making, screenprinting, sewing, music, and above all else: community.  Anecdote is her DIY-labor-of-love that seeks to encourage the Creative in all of us.
Emily formerly ran the pastry department of a culinary resort & spa in Vermont, and frequently works in the Denver film scene as a freelance Producer, Director, and Art Department; when not at Anecdote, you can find her collaborating with Degotelo Studios, RELIGHT creative, and other film production companies.

Due to the pandemic, she's been working the cafe solo and appreciates your patience as she figures out how to re-build Anecdote!
