Julie Myrtille, whose baked goods gained popularity at farmers markets around town, announced a new storefront coming early next year. It will be found in the Springdale General complex at 1023 Springdale Road in East Austin.
The menu at the new bakery will include breads; seasonal pastries; savory crepes, quiches, and sandwiches. There will also be farmer’s market favorites like croissants, canelés, kouign amann, madeleines, crepes, meringues, and jams. In terms of drinks, there will be tea, hot chocolate, coffee, and house-made lemonade.
Myrtille arrived in Austin from Paris in 2016, where she was the youngest female pastry chef to be inducted into the Academie Culinaire de France. She has become a popular destination at farmer’s markets around town, and intends to continue to make the rounds after the storefront opens. Her sister Melanie Roy is also her business partner.
While the shop is getting set up, Myrtille will still be at the farmer’s markets, and has an additional pop-up at West Elm at 1011 West 5th Street, from noon to 5 p.m. on November 18 and December 2, 9, 16, and 23.
