After lots of speculation and waiting and Plywood, Lovejoy Bakers, Pearl Bakery alum Dan Griffin's new (and once-haunted?) home, opened yesterday. The early word? An operative writes in:
Went to Lovejoy Bakers this morning for coffee and croissant. Amazing space--bright and open--and a big rack of breads like ciabattas and ryes and olive loaves. Croissant was good, super-buttery, crisp outside and dense inside; my friend's latte seemed to be going down well. Sandwiches had exciting things like figs on them. Really good layout, everything seems manageably scaled.Got anything to add? Tell us your story.
