Austin jam company Confituras is debuting its first brick-and-mortar bakery tomorrow, Friday, December 22, off South Lamar on 2129 Goodrich Avenue. Initially on deck will be owner Stephanie McClenny’s beloved jams, coffee from Little City Coffee Roasters, and Lost Pines Yaupon tea. Biscuits and baked goods from head baker Lauren Shugart, who worked at Dai Due previously, will begin after the holidays.
Confituras Little Kitchen’s initial hours are a little wonky. It will first open on Friday and Saturday, December 22 and 23, with limited hours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Then it will close for the holidays, and then reopen shortly after Christmas next week, ideally some day on Friday or Saturday, December 28 or 29.
Update, January 2, 2018: Confituras will open for full service starting on Wednesday, January 3. Initial hours are from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and then from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
The South Lamar space will also serve as an incubator for female chefs and women-led businesses, where they can make use of the kitchen and sell their goods in the shop. It will also be available for private events.
