La Fillette (by Sugar Vision) will be taking over the space at 4416 East 8th Avenue, previously occupied by the recently shuttered Leaf & Crumb Cupcake Shop and Bakery.
Baker Melissa Yanc, the owner of La Fillete, was previously a line cook at Uncle and a pastry assistant at Mercantile Dining & Provisions. Now, she runs Sugar Vision, a pastry production operation that used to craft its baked goods out of a commissary kitchen. Her croissants, danishes, quick breads, and macarons, and more can be found at shops like Amethyst Coffee, Purple Door, and Onefold.
The new retail shop and production space will open its doors to the public in May.
