Locally loved and nationally recognized pastry shop brings its sweet delights
and savory dishes to San Antonio’s Medical Center at the end of May 2016
Bakery Lorraine, a local favorite and nationally recognized pastry shop famous for its colorful macarons and exquisite French pastries, is excited to announce the opening of its second location, slated for the end of May 2016. Located in San Antonio’s Medical Center, Bakery Lorraine’s menu will offer pastries, breakfast, and lunch.
Owned by chefs Anne Ng, Jeremy Mandrell, and operator Charlie Biedenharn, Bakery Lorraine has quickly become a sensation in San Antonio. It was named one of the best new bakeries in the U.S. by Food & Wine and CNN’s Eatocracy blog, as well as one of the “13 Destination Bakeries” by Conde Nast Traveler.
“We’ve watched our location in the Pearl grow so quickly and receive so much local support; it’s been overwhelmingly exciting for us,” said Biedenharn. “We are thrilled to be opening a second location in one of the largest parts of San Antonio, alongside our neighbor Local Coffee, who also just opened another spot in the Medical Center.”
Husband and wife team Jeremy Mandrell and Anne Ng met while baking at Thomas Keller’s world-famous Bouchon Bakery in Napa Valley. After perfecting their craft in California, which included stints in top pastry kitchens around the San Francisco Bay Area, they settled in San Antonio in 2010, and in 2011, they established Bakery Lorraine. Voted “Best Bakery” in 2016 by the San Antonio Current, Bakery Lorraine serves handmade French pastries and macarons using the finest ingredients. From the best flours and seasonal fruits to farm-raised eggs and dairy, Bakery Lorraine is elevating the way cookies and croissants are perceived in San Antonio.
“Bakery Lorraine prides itself on the simplicity of our dishes and on serving well prepared foods. We are excited to develop a new menu for this location, which will include our sweet treats but also some new savory dishes and lunch specials,” said Mandrell.
In addition to the famous Parisian macarons and divine pastries, like the pain au chocolat, the new location will feature breakfast items, including the breakfast parfait, the quiche Lorraine, and breakfast sandwiches. Bakery Lorraine will also offer a variety of savory lunch dishes, including chicken potpie, an assortment of salads and soups, and artisan sandwiches.
Bakery Lorraine is located at 7338 Louis Pasteur Dr., Suite 201, San Antonio, TX 78229, in the same shopping center as Local Coffee. The store hours will be Monday through Sunday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information on Bakery Lorraine, please visit www.bakerylorraine.com.
