Let them eat cake…and other French pastries, too! After gaining popularity at its University Town Center (UTC) location, Mademoiselle Paris is opening a second spot in the Wells Fargo Advisors Building located at 1605 Main Street.
The family-owned French bakery and restaurant will operate a 765-square-foot space in the lobby of the 13-story office tower. Scheduled to open in October, the downtown location will be a quick-service version of the charming café at UTC, serving a selection of freshly made pastries, sandwiches, salads, quiches and coffee.
“This second location is exciting for us for so many reasons,” said Myriam Dandonneau, who co-owns Mademoiselle Paris with her husband Jean. “We moved to Sarasota from Paris six years ago to pursue a new life. We come from a long line of French chefs, so we opened the restaurant and bakery at UTC. Now we are growing with a sister location in the city that we love so much.”
