Taiwanese Bakery Import, Bake Culture, Debuts on the Bowery

Posted on: March 2nd, 2018 at 5:09 am by

The plywood shed fell away from Bowery last week to reveal the new commercial tenant. Taiwanese bakery import called Bake Culture is now serving, having opened on the block with fanfare earlier this week.

The bakery-slash-cafe at 48 Bowery serves a menu of pastries including seashell bread, classic chocolate cake, and lava tarts. Decor is somewhat unique, including table seating as well as rope-based swing sets hanging in the front windows.

The location appears fortuitous for the newcomer, sandwiched between the forthcoming location of Eddie Huang’s Baohaus and the Hotel 50 Bowery. This could become an easy tourist draw.

Bake Culture debuted two locations on the same day, too, comprising its first foray into the US market. The second outpost is situated in Flushing.

Meanwhile, the company is hiring staff for both locations.
