The Kitchen Table, 145 E. Vaughn St., a new two-in-one company that debuted June 23, offers a variety of handmade baked goodies and savoury meals to Bertram residents and tourists. Board Me owner Trisha Zeimetz collaborated with bakers Nancy and Gabriel Herrera of Reach for the Sky Bakeshop to create the coffee shop/bakery/restaurant.
“We feel like we’ve been working for ten years,” Zeimetz told DailyTrib.com after only two weeks on the job.
Customers may choose from a variety of ice creams, handmade macarons, and gourmet cupcakes from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Lunch is provided from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the moment.
Inside The Kitchen Table, visitors may sit at cafe tables or relax on a green couch. The exposed-brick walls provide for a great backdrop for Instagram-worthy photographs, which the proprietors encourage. Brigid Cooley took a snapshot of the staff.
Zeimetz and the Herreras both conducted modest companies out of their homes prior to their June 23 launch. Zeimetz caters parties and specialises in all things savoury, producing charcuterie boards with gourmet cheeses, meats, and fruits. The Hererras come from a bakery background, where they make things like homemade macarons and s’mores cupcakes.
After meeting at a small-business vendor event last year, the trio decided to cooperate.
“There was simply something about Nancy and Gabriel that I couldn’t get out of my head,” Zeimetz explained. “They are absolutely unique, gourmet bakers that make everything from scratch. I felt (their products) would complement charcuterie nicely. They were immediately on board. We split it 50/50 and paid everything out of pocket.”
The shop sells a range of sweets, including the cupcake of the week, which comes in flavours like s’mores and churros. Brigid Cooley took a snapshot of the staff.
The company is currently operational, but a ceremonial grand opening is scheduled for mid-July. For additional information about the event, go to The Kitchen Table’s website.
