Those counting down the days until Marla Bakery's 2014 brick and mortar opening can rest easy -- on Wednesday, Nov. 20, owners Amy Brown and Joe Wolf will launch the Marla Bakery Kitchen Communal, a take-out window that will offer a selection of their much-loved breads and pastries. Every Monday thru Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., hungry visitors can select from breakfast offerings that include pain au chocolat, bagels with herbed farmers cheese and gravlax, and the famed Marla bun. Lunch seekers will find a daily lunchbox packed with a savory pie, roasted true butternut with pumpkin seed vinaigrette, and burnt honey pot du crème with poached quince.
The dynamic, dough-slinging duo will be joined by SoMa's Spoonful of Sugar who will provide a selection of brioche doughnuts (bacon brittle, meyer lemon curd filled) and cupcakes (chocolate with earl grey buttercream, pistachio saffron with rosewater buttercream). Rounding out the stellar line-up is Wholesome Bakery with a variety of ice-cream sandwiches, cookie, chocolate and caramel-dipped donuts, and morning bread.
To combat the inevitable sugar coma, Wrecking Ball coffee will be supplying the much-needed caffeine.
Marla Bakery Kitchen Communal: 613 York St. (between 18th and 19th)
