Bakery Lorraine's current location in the Pearl
Local Sugar first covered Bakery Lorraine when it was located on East Grayson before moving to their current location. Now the bakery is set to open their second location in the Medical Center.
Inside Bakery Lorraine
Bakery Lorraine offers pastries, tarts, breads, cookies, and most notably, their colorful macarons. They also sling Merit roasted coffee, a locally roasted coffee also used by Local Coffee and other shops within the Pearl. You can enjoy breakfast and lunch here, as well.
Bakery Lorraine's breads and pastries
We stopped by early on a Sunday morning, before the Pearl Farmer’s Market opened at 10:00 a.m. This guaranteed a shorter line and a place to sit, as Bakery Lorraine can get quite busy on the weekends. Although they offered specials of the day, we opted for menu staples such as the baked oatmeal and the Croque Madame.
The baked oatmeal was filled with hearty oats, cinnamon, nuts, and topped with fresh berries and whipped cream. It was a delicious breakfast that was filling yet not too heavy, perfect for weekend mornings strolling around the Pearl farmer’s market. The Croque Madame came with a perfectly poached egg on top of ham, melty cheese, and toast; a savory option that is sure to satisfy.
Of course, you don’t have to sit down and make a meal out of your trip to Bakery Lorraine. They have plenty of pastries and treats to choose from, such as their famous house-made Pop-Tarts and macarons. These Pop-Tarts are definitely an upgrade from those boxed varieties, and Bakery Lorraine offers a fruity strawberry tart as well as a chocolate tart.
The house-made Strawberry Pop-Tart
If you are looking for a perfect bite sized treat, try one of their many flavored macarons. On this visit, they offered a Grapefruit Ginger macaron as well as a Pistachio flavor, but flavors change daily, with seasonal offerings as well. These little treats had an exterior crunch while the inside was light and chewy, and both distinctly flavored. Their macarons can be purchased by the dozen or half dozen if you’re looking to impress a special someone.
Beautiful macarons in a variety of fun flavors
The cases at Bakery Lorraine changes frequently, so you always have an excuse to visit and try something new. It's the perfect place to stop by for a treat while walking around the Pearl, and definitely a destination in its own right.
