About the Business:
Begun in 1952 as a backyard hobby by Dorothy Pacey (Kim’s grandmother), Punta Clara Kitchen has grown into a family-owned and operated business that now involves FOUR generations of Paceys. Our specialty candies are still made using old, treasured family recipes. We handcraft our candies in our kitchen just as we have for over 65 years. 

Please visit our website to see additional products. Visit our store in Point Clear to step back to a simpler time and to check out our samples. We can put together any combination you can think of! Custom gift baskets.

We make cakes to order, so please call to order 24-48 hours if possible.

Then Kim came on board in a management role in mid 2000s and continues to manage with her dad, Paul Pacey. She can be found assisting customers, icing cakes, making jelly, washing dishes, doing the bookkeeping, or anything else that needs doing.
