Lambertville Bakehouse will celebrate its Grand Opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 18.
The Bakehouse, located at 61 N. Main St., Lambertville, N.J., is owned and operated by local resident Tiera Burrows. She will be joined in the ribbon cutting by Lambertville mayor Andrew J. Nowick.
“I am very grateful for the support and enthusiasm that Lambertville residents showed for the Bakehouse at our soft opening during Shad Fest,” Burrows said. “We are looking forward to providing the community with high-quality, artisanal baked goods.”
Burrows, who was raised in Bucks County, moved back to the area after training as a pastry chef at Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island and working for several years at fine dining and Michelin-starred restaurants in Boston and New York City. “I always loved the River Towns and dreamed of opening a bakery here,” Burrows explained. “During COVID, I found this location and decided to take the leap.”
Kitchen and storefront renovations and business development took place over the last year. “Everything took longer than expected,” Burrows stated. “Covid and supply chain issues all contributed to the delay, but we are excited to be opening now.” Local historian and Realtor Lou Toboz helped Burrows secure the location. Toboz noted, “Lambertville hasn’t had its own bakery for over 10 years. I think Tiera’s business will be a great addition to the town.”
Lambertville Bakehouse will offer assorted breads, bagels, pastries and desserts. “All of our goods are baked right here on our premises,” Burrows explained. “We want to provide a welcoming location where neighbors can grab a pastry and coffee or pick up their bagels and bread for the week. Lambertville is a great community to be a part of.” The Lambertville Bakehouse will be open Thursdays through Sundays, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
