Renee is an employee of the Secret Bakery, a bakery and coffee shop located in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Renee is a short, curvy girl with thick glasses, which makes her very similar to Faye. Padma has remarked on some resemblance in temperament as well.[1]

Renee apparently met Angus at a party, where the two of them started to date. Angus routinely came in to the Secret Bakery to flirt with her - somewhat akin to what he did with Faye.[1] They have since split up, to the joy of Angus's roommates.[2]

Renee was apparently not a fan of Coffee of Doom due to "something about a snail in a latte".[2] Faye suspects that it must have been Dora who did it, since she couldn't recall doing anything like that.

She is a good friend of Brun, who stayed with her after the destruction of her apartment.

She is ethnically African-American[3] and bisexual[4].
