To combine his interests in baking and cycling, in 2008 Belgian native Olivier Vrambout opened the Bikery in Stillwater as a hybrid cycle shop and café. He opened a second outpost, the Bikery du Nord, in downtown Marine on St. Croix a couple years later. Du Nord combines a coffee shop with bike and Nordic ski sales and service, as well as spin classes and club rides. The café is decorated with a display of bicycle wheels suspended from the ceiling, and the walls are covered with vintage bicycle ads, bicycle-themed artwork, and jerseys. Vrambout's mother, Maryse, can often be found behind the counter, selling several types of European pastries, including croissants and galettes. Her French accent is as delicious as the dark-chocolate-topped profiteroles (cream puffs) and moliere (a gourmet version of the standard coffeehouse mocha made with rich, not-too-sweet Belgian chocolate ganache). Vrambout is also taking his operation mobile with his Bikery truck that's designed to haul bikes and serve food, including dense, chewy, Liège-style waffles and espresso.
