Bakery on 6th Ave & 9th St?

  • m

Does anyone have any info about the patisserie opening on the corner of 6th Ave and 9th St. in the Slope? Good bakeries are much needed around here. You would think there'd be better ones in the area. TIA.

        Bob, the bakery you're thinking of is called Delices de Paris or something like that. I agree that some of the stuff you get there is pretty good, but I'm excited for it to have some competition.

        Up in Prospect Heights, we're eagerly awaiting the opening of a bakery on Vanderbilt and Park, which I think is called Joyce Bakeshop... With this and Sweet Melissa's, soon Park Slope/Prospect Heights will be flooded with bakeries!

      2. The bakery is called Colson Patisserie. It doesn't appear to be open yet. I love the look - very French. And I noticed that Sweet Melissa's is opening on 7th Avenue right across from P.S. 321 later this summer.

          I live a few doors up and have been watching the transformation. The coffee equipment looks pretty darned serious, the space is pretty and airy and clean, and they've got a "coming soon" sign. I'll report as soon as I go.

        2. Where? The former Microchip Cafe space??

            Yup. Curious to see what they make of the space. I noticed today that someone has started construction at the old India House place further south on 7th. Please, not another mediocre chinese joint!

          2. We shall see how it turns out. They may even be planning a Brunch combo with Barbes for morning music and food???

              For Bastille Day they did something like that. I walk by a couple of times a week to see if it's opened yet.
