Terryl Gavre is something of a breakfast expert. The experienced chef and restaurateur (Bankers Hill Bar + Restaurant), launched her first daytime eatery, downtown's Cafe 222, over 20 years ago and says that brunch has been the most popular meal at ACME Southern Kitchen, which opened earlier this year.
Her newest passion project, Bake Sale, will unveil itself on Monday morning in the East Village. Gavre, who says she's always dreamed of owning a bakery, has fashioned a tribute to an old-fashioned bake shop filled with charm and aromas of oven-baked treats.
Open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday though Saturday, Bake Sale will stock everything from the granola, scones and muffins which are also served at Cafe 222 to the sticky buns and brioche buns on ACME's menu. There's fresh bread, including onion-rye and a peasant loaf, ready to be sliced, toasted and smeared with butter, cream cheese or nutella, croissants and coffee from Cafe Moto.
At 11 a.m., the shop will start offering lunch, from sandwiches, including smoked turkey, egg salad and meatloaf, to a daily soup and prepared salads. For dessert, there are lemon bars, cookies, coconut macaroons, ice cream sandwiches and more. In the fall, Bake Sale will add homemade pies, both large and small, to the menu.
