1. Produce high-quality baked goods in a fun and safe environment.
2. Strive to have a low impact on the environment through our practices, our packaging, and our support of local farmers.
3. Have fun! Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”
Two Birds is committed to using locally sourced and locally processed ingredients in their baked goods whenever possible. We find that choosing local ingredients provides a sense of community, strengthens the local economy, and enhances connections with family and community farms. A few of these ingredients include honey, eggs, butter, and locally processed flax seed.
Trilety and Megan met in 2008. Soon after, they learned that they shared a love of baking. Myths and origin stories are romantic, but their story is simple and natural. They met. They became friends. They baked. They casually played with the idea of opening a bakery someday. Then, in May of 2010, Megan called Trilety and said, “You know how we’ve talked about opening a bakery? Would you want to talk seriously about that?” And Trilety nearly yelped, “Yes.”
We were proud and pleased to receive a favorable and supportive review from the Omaha World Herald’s Food Reviewer, Sarah Baker Hansen, in November of 2013. Read the review here!
In January 2014, we were again mentioned in the Omaha World Herald for our cookies sold at the Film Streams concession counter; you can find that piece here.

Beyond baking, Trilety finds joy in hiking, learning, and spending time with loved ones.
About the Building
The Two Birds Bakery building was built by Roy Johnson, Trilety’s maternal great-grandfather, in 1957 and was dedicated as a United States Post Office that same year. The original address of the building was 232 Main Street, but was changed to 2812 N Main Street in 2005 when the City of Omaha annexed the City of Elkhorn because a 232 Main Street already existed in the Omaha city limits.
