McArthur’s Bakery Café will whip up a lot more frosting next month. The 60-year-old St. Louis institution announced yesterday, Feb. 4, that it will add another bakery and cafe at 6630 Delmar Blvd., in The Loop. McArthur’s will move into the space formerly occupied by St. Louis Bread Co., and is shooting for a mid-March opening.

“When we heard the space was available, we knew it was the right space for us,” said owner Scott Rinaberger. “We opened the cafe concept in Kirkwood around Labor Day, and the concept has done really well. It gave us the confidence to pursue The Loop location.”

The space will undergo mostly cosmetic renovations, and when complete it will have an indoor and outdoor capacity of slightly less than 100 and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“We revamped the food menu at the Kirkwood location to provide upscale soup, salad and sandwiches,” said Ben Abel, executive director of food service. “It’s been extremely well received, and we want the people in The Loop to feel like they can come in and grab something quickly or stay and linger, have a study group or a business meeting.”

A feature unique to The Loop location will be the glass-enclosed pastry kitchen, where patrons will be able to watch pastry chefs prepare everything from European pastries to cupcakes to the special occasion and wedding cakes McArthur’s is known for.

Rinaberger said more McArthur’s locations may be in the works to open later this year.
