If you’ve been to Bakeri in Williamsburg or Greenpoint, you now have a local outpost.

Bakerita, their East Village spinoff, recently opened on East 6th Street. Known for its homemade breads and pastries, they are also serving Counter Culture coffee.

We spoke with Manager Catherine Stack, who has been with Bakeri since its beginning in 2009. She said that they were delighted to jump the river to the East Village, stating that the neighborhood “provides some of the most entertaining, kind and generous group of patrons I’ve ever had the pleasure of serving.”

Bakeri and Bakerita’s goal, their website says, is to bring “small batch, European-style bread to our community…with homemade pastries and high-quality coffee.” While their roots are Northern European, their day to day menu “changes depending on what we’re inspired by; be it a seasonal fruit, recent travels, or last night’s dream.”

Bakerita is located at 627 East 6th Street, and it’s open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday; and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.

Game Over for ‘Water World Amusements’ Arcade on Essex Street
