Life is better when it's interesting.
When you can't choose just one: pastries, chocolate eclair, tarts with a flat white coffee espresso at St Germain French Bakery
St. Germain French Bakery & Cafe, located at The Interlock, opened in 2021 by husband wife team, Heather and Mathieu Jourdan-Gassin. It is their second location with a Ponce City Market stall opening in 2016.
With a nod to neighborhood bakeries and cafes from the streets of France, St. Germain seduces with its sidewalk seating complete with ratan chairs and bistro tables. Inside, find a casual cafe atmosphere where the pâtisserie is the star. Delectable French pastries, macarons, and croissants. Coffee, tea, artisan chocolates, quiches and sandwiches. In true American style, plenty of seating in comfy chairs, at the coffee bar and spacious tables beckon for a longer stay with laptops in hand.
