We can very nearly smell that bread baking
There is a new neighborhood bakery soon to open on Excelsior Boulevard in St. Louis Park. Honey and Rye is a labor of love from Emily Ackerman and Anne Andrus. Andrus was trained at the San Francisco Baking Institute, while Ackerman's background is in the graphic design and advertising world. The two are lifelong friends on the verge of embarking on a shared dream.
The two are hauling in reclaimed wood from a country farm as the former S & D Cleaner's is transformed into their new neighborhood bakeshop. Customers can expect to find plenty of fresh-baked bread and treats utilizing locally produced, organic, and sustainable ingredients whenever possible. They'll be serving cakes, sandwiches, and breakfast pastries.
They anticipate opening this fall.
