Austin bakery delivery service Paper Route Bakery is opening its new brick-and-mortar spot at 1010 East Cesar Chavez Street, found on the side of coffee shop and restaurant Cenote. Owner and baker Aaron Seriff-Cullick opened the bakery on Thursday, September 13.
Paper Route is known for its decadent and intricate cakes, which will be available by the slice at the bakery, as well as cookies and brownies. Expect flavors like Mexican vanilla, dulce de leche, carrot cake, chocolate fudge, and much more. It’s noted for its gluten-free creations as well.
The brick-and-mortar bakery will expand the menu with scones, house-made pop tarts, coffee cakes (with a vegan version), and Brazilian cheese breads. Scope out the working menu below.
Seriff-Cullick had originally set out to open a pushcart peddling Paper Route’s baked goods with a brick-and-mortar to follow after that, but his Kickstarter campaign was so successful that he was able to bypass the bakery-on-wheels completely. He’ll continue to work on custom cakes too.
Seriff-Cullick discovered his passion for baking while running a late-night cookie delivery service during his years at Yale University. That progressed into catering and larger orders, which he continued when he returned to Austin in 2014 with Paper Route Bakery.
That East Cesar Chavez spot had been home to juice bar and vegetarian spot Juice Box, which closed sometime in the fall of 2017. Once Paper Route opens, its hours will be from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
