The Scoop: More details roll in on soon-to-open Pint Size Bakery

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

The Scoop recently reported pastry chef Christy Augustin’s plans to open her own bakery. Until now, Augustin has kept mum about the location and target opening date for Pint Size Bakery as she negotiated the terms of the lease.

Pint Size Bakery will make its home in the Lindenwood Park neighborhood at 3825 Watson Road, a space formerly occupied by various carry out pizza companies, most recently Bono’s Pizzeria. Augustin hopes to open her shop in early April, since few changes to the space will need to be made. The interior will get a fresh coat of paint to make it “cutesy” and a counter – crafted by Augustin’s woodworker husband from a reclaimed bowling alley lane – will be installed. Any delays, expects Augustin, will be from licensing and permitting.

As for the eats, Pint Size Bakery will not have a standing menu. Rather, there will be categories of baked goods such as bread, muffins, cookies, scones and cupcakes, the flavors of which will “rotate to keep it really fresh with a seasonal focus,” explained Augustin. The bakery will also offer a few hot items including quiches, grilled cheese sandwiches and savory muffins. “We’ll have a good savory focus,” she noted. “To me, pastry is the entire spectrum; it’s not just sweet.”

The bakery will also settle morning caffeine fixes, offering coffee and espresso-based drinks using Kaldi’s beans. Syrups and other java add ins will be house-made.

Pint Size will not have a sit-down dining area, but Augustin hopes that with ample parking (shared with neighboring Pietro’s Restaurant) and the bakery’s location at the busy intersection of Watson Road and Lindenwood Avenue, folks looking for freshly baked goods and a quality cup of Joe won’t mind Pint Size’s grab-and-go style.

When doors open, which could be as early as April 1, hours will be Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
