There is a new bakery in Historic Boylan Heights! It’s located at 614 W. South St. in a small, warehouse-esque building with one of those huge glass windows that rolls up like a garage door along the entire front side of the building and an artistic display along the side.
There are some picnic tables outside, next to their garden.
They have veggies and herbs growing -they use these for some of their more savory offerings, like the bacon eggplant bread pudding that I can’t wait to taste.
The inside is simple, clean and looks like a workspace for creativity. They have their own stone mill, so they are able to grind their own flour. They will eventually sell their flour and grits. I can’t wait for that!
Walking in, you are greeted by people you honestly believe are as happy as they seem. It’s like they drank the Kool-aid and loved it. They seem genuinely interested in talking about their morning creations, and downright proud of each and every pastry.
Which they should be. They are beautiful! And taste just as good as they look. I only took a few photos, because the glare on the glass was impossible to shoot around. But, you can see this currant sticky bun is perfectly golden brown.
I ordered the coffee, made from grounds purchased from Counter Culture and the chocolate croissant. They used chocolate from Escazu Artisan Chocolates, a local chocolate company. It was immaculate. The pastry was crisp and buttery, the chocolate was dark and just sweet enough. It was an amazing match for the coffee and a great start to my morning.
I can’t wait to go back and try the bread puddings. Please go to Boulted Bread! If you don’t, you will be missing one of the most artfully created pastry items in Raleigh.
