Notable Valley pastry chef Tammie Coe is doing her spring cleaning early this year.
In December, three months after ending her relationship with La Grande Orange in Arcadia, Coe soft opened a new shop at 5210 North Central Avenue in Central Phoenix. Located next door to Federal Pizza, the latest restaurant from Craig DeMarco and his Upward Projects group (which Coe's husband and bread master MJ Coe designed the bread and artisinal pizzas for), Coe's new shop officially opens tomorrow, Tuesday, January 15.
Here's a look inside along with what Coe fans can expect.
Coe's new Central Avenue shop will offer a selection of the pastry chef's popular sweet treats (think cookies, red velvet cupcakes, and Coe's "crack cake"), selections from her husband's company MJ Bread such as herb sour dough, English muffins, and bagels, and Lux coffee and tea. Visitors can get their goodies to go or relax on one of several comfy couches and chairs amid for-sale artwork and a few fabric-covered walls.
Coe says she'll be closing her Arcadia location, used for catering and custom orders, at 40th street and Campbell on Friday, February 1st. Tammie Coe's downtown location, at 610 East Roosevelt Street, remains open and offers breakfast and lunch in addition to a full line of Tammie Coe Cakes and MJ Bread.
And there's more Coe to come. On Tuesday, February 5, Tammie Coe Cakes will open a space in Terminal 4 at Sky Harbor Airport.
