Hotly anticipated bakeshop and cafe The Station is now open for business in Mid-City. The pint-sized coffee shop located at 4400 Bienville St. threw open its doors on Wednesday, according to Ian McNulty.
The freshly renovated spot nestled close to the Lefitte Greenway was first proposed back in 2015 by baker/Angelo Brocato's alum Megan Walker and husband Jonathan Walker. As the name suggests, the shop is located inside a long-shuttered filling station from the 1930s. But these days space is now more tuned towards filling mugs and stomachs with tasty pastries. The building itself received a fresh coat of paint and now features a vibrant purple roof with teal trim. Inside, The Station offers a cozy area with four tops, bar seating near the window, and a wooden book shelf.
Patrons can expect coffee and espresso drinks brewed with Orleans Coffee Exchange and Revelator Coffee blends plus a mix of sweet and savory breakfast and lunch dishes: meat pies, kolaches, housemade ganola and yogurt, quiche, sandwiches, cookies, and mini key lime pies to name a few.
