Chef and restaurateur Aaron Chamberlin already has two well-loved Central Phoenix restaurants, St. Francis and the Phoenix Public Market Cafe. But the success of both eateries isn't slowing him down. This spring, Chamberlin launched a new wholesale bakery division of his downtown eatery, making Phoenix Public Market Cafe the largest gourmet bakery in the area, according to the restaurant.
So, what does that mean to you? Mostly it means you'll be able to find the spot's freshly-baked pastries at a handful of local coffee shops as well as at the cafe. Thanks to the new team of seven pastry cooks led by Executive Pastry Chef Sarah Chisholm, the Phoenix Public Market Cafe now delivers fresh baked goods to all six Valley Cartel Coffee Labs; Futuro, located inside the Palabra Collective; and Peixoto Coffee in Chandler.
The expansion also allows Chamberlin to grow his catering division, which offers both “drop and go” service — with free delivery within a five-mile radius of the restaurant — and “roll up and receive” service for convenient curbside pick-up.
Chamberlin opened the Phoenix Public Market Cafe in 2012. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in addition to offering coffee and espresso and a full bar. The menu focuses on simple, healthy foods, with an emphasis on sourcing ingredients locally, including from the adjacent farmers' market.
