The Scoop: Pastry chef Christy Augustin to open Pint Size Bakery in South City

January 30th 11:01am, 2012

013012_augustinBakery addicts, get ready to fill your bellies: Talented local pastry chef Christy Augustin, who spent time manning the desserts at King Louie’s and Sidney Street Cafe, is opening her own shop in South City. Pint Size Bakery will offer house-made breads and pastries that “change with the seasons and our most fickle whims,” according to its website. Real butter, unbleached flours and farm-fresh eggs are all part of the bakery’s from-scratch philosophy.

An exact location and opening date have yet to be announced. On Jan. 22, however, Augustin posted on the Pint Size Bakery blog that, “We have been working on this dream of a tiny little bakery and coffee shop for years and it is beginning to come to fruition. Check back here often for updates and progress. For now, all I have to say is that it is happening … that it will be cute and cozy in South City … that you will want to come by everyday.”

Augustin’s career includes time spent working in New Orleans at The Ritz-Carlton and at Bayona, Susan Spicer’s celebrated restaurant that is housed in a 200-year-old Creole cottage in the French Quarter. Locally, the native St. Louisan was a pastry chef at the now-defunct King Louie’s and, most recently, at Sidney Street Cafe, a role that she discussed with Sauce in early 2008. Augustin left Sidney Street in 2009 to teach at Le Cordon Bleu in St. Peters.
