A highly anticipated bakery is opening this weekend in Seattle

Jan 21 2021, 3:45 pm

Cafe Flora, Seattle’s vegetarian institution, will soon welcome a new sibling bakery this weekend: The Flora Bakehouse.

The Beacon Hill bakery will be located near Cleveland High School and just up the hill from bustling Georgetown at 1511 S Lucile Street. It’s expected to be a new go-to spot for the neighborhood residents, students, and teachers.

“We fell in love with this tight-knit Beacon Hill community and are so excited to expand the bakery into a neighborhood gathering place,” said owner Nat Stratton-Clarke in a press release. “It’s even more meaningful that 2021 marks Cafe Flora’s 30th anniversary; the transformation from production bakery into The Flora Bakehouse has turned out to be unintentionally well-timed.”

The Flora Bakehouse had previously served as a production bakery to provide daily fresh-baked goods to Cafe Flora in Madison Valley and Floret’s busy grab-and-go counter.

The transformed public café space will dole out freshly baked sweet and savory pastries, croissants, muffins, pies, quiches, brownies, cookies, as well as many gluten-free and vegan options, such as Cafe Flora’s famous vegan cinnamon rolls.

Guests can also look forward to kouign amann, a rotating menu of seasonally inspired pastries, breakfast sandwiches, a full menu of inventive Stumptown espresso drinks, and a robust tea selection.

The Flora Bakehouse will be open daily for takeout and to-go service from 7 am to 6 pm. Owners are hoping to open their 40-foot long rooftop garden for outdoor seating by late spring, following public health restrictions.
