Birdbath Bakery is Opening a New Location on Spring Street in Little Italy

Melbourne-based Crumpler closed its minuscule retail operation on Spring Street back in September. The store functioned there for a decade. Well, it didn’t take too long for the landlord to score a replacement. Ladies and germs, Birdbath Green Bakery is opening its eighth city location here at in the coming weeks.

Birdbath signed the lease for 45 Spring Street late last week. They hope for a “quick buildout to open as fast as we can.”

It’s worth noting that this Birdbath outpost is the third bakery in the immediate one-block vicinity (Ceci-Cela, Eight Turn Crepe).

Birdbath is the spawn of sister brand, City Bakery. If unfamiliar with the establishment…

The bakeries are built from recycled, found, vintage, and sustainable materials. Birdbath is wind-powered, and the food is delivered from our main kitchen in bicycle-powered rickshaws. We give discounts to any customer who arrives by bike [or skateboard!] and we are a regular field trip stop for local schools who bring students to see what a bakery with walls made of wheat looks like!
