Atlanta pâtisserie Saint-Germain Bakery and Cafe is now open at the Interlock and Bellyard Hotel along Howell Mill Road, across from Westside Provisions District. The bakery-cafe offers limited seating inside, with additional cafe-style seating on the patio.
Named for the Parisian neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Pres in the 6th arrondissement, the cafe is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves French pastries alongside a menu of grilled sandwiches, croque monsieurs, quiches, and soups. In addition to coffee, tea, and espresso, Saint-Germain at the Interlock eventually plans to serve French wines and champagne by the glass.
“Our menu is continuing to evolve towards a full café menu with sandwiches, quiches, croisandwiches, soups and boards (charcuterie, cheese and seasonal tapas),” a representative for Saint-Germain Bakery tells Eater.
Before opening Saint-Germain Bakery in 2016 at Ponce City Market, French native Mathieu Jourdan-Gassin and Heather Jourdan-Gassin worked at French and American restaurants around Atlanta for several years. The pâtisserie is known for its selection of classic French pastries, croissants, chouquettes, macarons, and chocolates
A similar bakery-cafe location with street-side seating opens in late September at luxe-retail complex Buckhead Village on Peachtree Road.
