The Brief.

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.

The Elevation.

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.

Go for the Pâtisserie.

Myriad choices of pastries. Myriad opportunities for delight.


Go for the Macarons.

Go ahead, choose a boxed set for a moment of reminisce of Ladurée Champs-Elysées.  


Go for the Cappuccino.

Delish. The coffee is from Cafe Richard, a premiere French roaster. But, it’s the treats that accompany it that make it interesting. Don’t overlook those two wrapped surprises on your saucer.

Menu Highlights

Myriad Mouse Cakes, 14 different Tarts, Eclairs, Napoleon, Opera, Carrot Cake, Cheesecake, Tiramisu, 15 flavors of Macarons, Croissants, Danishes. Plus sandwiches and quiche for lunch.
