Family-friendly destination voted one of “America’s Best Bakeries” by Travel + Leisure magazine
Attention Mid-City residents: Gracious Bakery + Café is now offering full lunch service on Sundays. Going along with their expanded hours is a new lineup of sandwiches and salads, including the following:
Turkey Breast – House-cooked turkey breast, cayenne-candied bacon, cranberry-orange relish and arugula on oatmeal bread
Pork Braciole – Rolled and sliced pork loin filled with Parmesan, baby kale and garlic aioli on focaccia
Corned Beef – House-brined and slow-cooked with pickled slaw, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing on multigrain rye
Roasted Turnip and Sweet Potato Salad On spinach with goat cheese and pecans
“This is kind of a big deal,” says owner and third-string dishwasher Jay Forman. “I’m partial to the cayenne-candied bacon. Really doesn’t need the rest of the sandwich; it does just fine on its own.” All breads are made daily, in house. Along with the new lunch service, Gracious also offers a terrific line-up of baked goods like their Bruleed Pear Danish, Pretzel Croissants, and Hazelnut “Kermit” Cruffins. Desserts include Pumpkin-Spice Cake and Flourless Chocolate and Raspberry Bouchon Bites. Now open on Sundays until 2 pm, this family-friendly artisan bake shop is helmed by Sucré alumna Megan Forman and has been recognized by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of “America’s Best Bakeries.” Locally roasted French Truck Coffee, specialty Chai and free Wi-Fi round out the neighborhood appeal.Located in the ground floor of the Woodward Building across from Fox 8 News, Gracious Bakery is open seven days a week and provides business catering to the CBD and Greater New Orleans area with free delivery.
