Jessica Nolen (wife of Jeremy Nolen, of Bruahaus and Wursthaus Schmitz and Whetstone Tavern) will debut her neighborhood bakery and cafe in Queen Village on Monday, November 16th.
The Little Bird Bakery & Cafe, located at 517 S. 5th Street, will feature favorites from Nolen’s dessert menus at Brauhaus Schmitz and Whetstone Tavern, as well as recipes from New German Cooking–the cookbook she co-authored with Jeremy.
The Little Bird (which gets its name from Nolen’s maiden name Vogul, meaning “little bird” in German) will offer a breakfast and lunch menu, roasted coffee from Counter Culture Coffee, sweet and savory desserts and custom cakes. There’ll be bar and cookie platters with mix-and-match options including, snickerdoodles, toffee chocolate blondies, mini pumpkin cream “Whoopie” pies, dark chocolate dipped coconut macaroons, candied orange meringues dipped in spiced chocolate and lots more.
The bakery will also specialize in seasonal and year-round treats such as Bavarian soft pretzels (like the ones at Brauhaus) and specialty baked breads like baguettes and focaccia, barley-sage bread and a classic wheat loaf.
Prior to opening, they will also be accepting Thanksgiving dessert pre-orders which can be placed by calling 267-519-2312.
The Little Bird Bakery & Cafe will be open for dine-in guests and take-out orders Monday-Saturday from 7am-6pm.
