A local mobile bakery — a cart on a tricycle — that has appeared at farmers markets and outdoor spaces in the Boston area, selling shortbreads and other pastries, will open a permanent location in Jamaica Plain. Third Cliff Bakery founder Meg Crowley has signed a lease for a space at 3525 Washington St., in a mixed-use development that’s under construction, and she aims to open the bakery there this fall.
With this expansion, there will be several tiers of the business beyond bakery operations, which will run from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Crowley plans to run a wholesale business, offering packaged goods like granola and shortbread to local shops and grocers, and she will open the bakery for special event rentals. Third Cliff will also offering catering, online orders, and classes.
Crowley put together an investor campaign to fundraise $75,000 to help with costs of preparing the space. A sample menu shows off potential items that will be available when Third Cliff opens this fall, including coffee beverages, teas, muffins, breads, soups, and some grab-and-go items like granola and yogurt.
“Over the past three years of vending with our mobile cafe — the Third Cliff Trike — we have developed a robust menu of seasonal specials, and a foundation for continual innovation to engage our customers’ curiosity,” writes Crowley on the Third Cliff website. “We are delighted to transition this model and culture to a cafe where we will offer a more robust breakfast and lunch menu, as well as a full coffee and tea program and small bread program.”
