After being slowed by the global pandemic, Saint-Germain French Bakery is moving towards a summer opening at The Interlock
Owner Heather Jourdan-Gassin expects to be open by late May or early June.
“This will be our first location to sell alcohol,” she told What Now Atlanta. “We just thought it would be nice to have a coffee and wine bar.”
The bakery will also do coffee service for the The Bellyard Hotel. As the Interlock moves closer to opening in spring 2021, Saint-Germain will be surrounded by other restaurants and bars, such as the Pour Taproom, in the $450 million mixed-use development.
For incoming tenants, The West Midtown neighborhood is known for its industrial vibe, refined boutiques and coveted restaurants.
Jourdan-Gassin felt the West Side is really up and coming neighborhood.
“Apartments are coming up… the biggest draw about Interlock is it will be way easier to park,” she said.
Already with a location at Ponce City Market, Jourdan-Gassin said the new spot won’t be part of a food hall this time and will have places to sit down. It will include tables and a full coffee service.
“Our main feature is the French pastries and the macaroons,” she added.
After filing permit applications with the city to buildout the pâtisserie, Jourdan-Gassin said one of the biggest draws for The Interlock will be the parking.
She said she’s heard a lot of feedback from customers about parking at her other location and expects to have a lot of customers anxiously awaiting their grand opening.
