DINER: A Look Inside “Beaucoup Bakery” – Opening On Fir St. Before End Of November

November 2, 2012.

by Andrew Morrison | I took a look-see inside the Beaucoup Bakery construction site at 2150 Fir St. yesterday with owner Jackie Ellis. The kitchen is looking 80% complete and the floor/display area is probably at 50%. There’s still a lot of stuff incoming, including the full display case, a retail island, what sounds like a really cool antique wooden coffee cart, and a reclaimed wood table (bar height) for the window with iron feet. The little bakery that will provide us with things like salted caramel éclairs filled with caramel pastry cream (sprinkled with black hawaiian sea salt, natch) is a little behind schedule due to things beyond Ellis’ control (the entire building has been delayed), but it’s still coming together nicely. For now, Ellis is fine tuning her recipes at home and looking forward to test driving all her new equipment once all is permitted and ready. She’s now looking at the end of the month to unleash the place, together with her kouign amann, marcona almond bars, macarons, croissants, pain au chocolat, valrhona brownies with crystallized violet, 49th Parallel coffee, and much more. Dig all the natural light and exposed girders in the shots below…
