Jessica Nolen, the pastry chef for Brauhaus Schmitz and Whetstone is striking out on her own. Nolen is opening The Little Bird Bakery and Cafe at 517 S 5th Street, the former home of Cookie Confidential. The Little Bird will make all the bread and pastries for the two restaurants as well as offer breakfast pastries, desserts, soups, salads and lunchtime sandwiches to the public.
Nolen, who is the wife of Brauhaus Schmitz chef and Whetstone owner Jeremy Nolen, has most of her funding in place but has launched a GoFundMe campaign for a couple of high price pieces of equipment. Nolen is looking to raise money for her coffee setup and an industrial mixer.
If all goes well, the Little Bird Bakery and Cafe will open in October.
