THE GROWING ASIAN BAKERY BUSINESS IN ATLANTA, GA
We spent a lot of time in Atlanta preparing for our latest issue that covers the extensive food culture of the area. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough room in print to mention all of ATL’s titillating treats, but we wanted to make sure our readers knew about some of the city’s other undiscovered jewels: Asian inspired bakeries. Check out these highlights that are sure to satisfy anyone’s sugar cravings.
- The guys at Joli Kobe Bakey & Café are no newbies to the baking business. Owner Katsuhiko “Vic” Watanabe set up shop back in 1985, after noticing a lack of authentic Japanese cuisine in the Atlanta area. He partnered up with chef François Collet to create a bakery that fuses authentic Japanese and French baked treats.
- Mozart Bakery has little to do with the classical composer, but a lot to do with fresh Korean pastries. They’re best known for their Korean cakes, green tea-infused baked goods, and of course Korea’s signature bubble teas.
- White Windmill Bakery & Café has three strategic locations around the Atlanta area, making sure that everyone’s sweet tooth is satisfied Korean-style. They also offer breakfast sandwiches and an extensive coffee and tea menu.
- Another Korean bakery, Hansel & Gretel, hosts a variety of visually appealing sweet treats. Their baked goods are known to be especially light and fluffy.
