Set in a former synagogue that now offers affordable space to artists, Temple Bakery officially opened on Thursday, January 29 at 2400 Curtis Street. Brainchild of Shauna Lott of the Long I Pie and Eden Myles of Five Points Pizza, the new spot located in an 1880s building also houses Valhalla Cakes and Sixth Elegy Baking. The former is a decorative cakes startup owned by Sam Slade; the latter an ode to all enriched dough products from croissants to cinnamon buns and monkey bread.
During the day from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., guests will find baked goods, sweet and savory pies and galettes, sandwiches made on Sixth Elegy and bagels crafted by Myles, quiches, and even salads - at lunch time, of course. Local darling Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters is providing the beans for coffee. Starting at 6 p.m. and until 2 a.m,Five Points Pizza will be doing its thing with the Italian-inspired pies.
Temple Bakery is open Tuesday through Sunday, closing at 10 p.m. Sundays.
