Austin pastry chef Julie Myrtille of her namesake French bakery is opening a brand-new yet similar bakery later this year. The Rose Bakery is found at 10000 Research Boulevard in the Arboretum as of December 17.
Much like the original Julie Myrtille Bakery and farmers market stand, Rose Bakery offers lots of French baked goods and pastries, as well as some American and English options. Expect canelés, brioches, madeleines, crepes, quiches, macarons, other breads, soups and homemade jams. The physical space will include indoor dine-in areas and a patio.
Currently, Rose is operating with a limited menu. That’ll expand sometime in January 2024. Its current hours will be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Myrtille, who is French and has been a member of the Academie Culinaire de France since 2017, started the bakery as an Austin farmers market stand in Austin in 2016. With business partner Melanie Roy, she expanded with the physical space within the Springdale General complex in 2019.
Julie Myrtille Bakery’s Springdale General location is staying open and its various farmers market stands are remaining operational.
Update, December 19: This article, originally published on September 15, has been updated to include Rose Bakery’s opening date and hours.
