This New Kenmore Bakery Is Sweet, Literally
A new bakery in Kenmore is "sweet" for everyone, and when we say for everyone- vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free, even keto-friendly- as well as traditional pastries and cakes.
Fig Tree Patisserie, 3602 Delaware Avenue, opened its doors on Monday 7/1.
The shop is owned by Natalie Schultz, of Desserts by Natalie, who owned another bakery by the same name on Kenmore Avenue in Buffalo.
Vegan treats are provided by Courtney Justus, known on Instagram as @ThatVeganBakingBetch.
The pair met through Instagram and quickly became friends.
“We went to the same high school, but I’m older so we never crossed paths,” Justus said. “But on Instagram, I was like “your cakes are so good and cute”- we became best friends like instantly.”
Both women have been baking since they were kids.
Justus said when she went vegan four years ago, she started baking her own vegan sweets.
“I used to love sweets, and I needed to make myself vegan stuff,” Justus said. “I would find recipes online and tweak them, then about two years ago I started making my own recipes.”
While it’s not a completely nut-free bakery, they try to make it allergen-friendly.
“We want everyone to have treats,” Schultz added.
Hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, closed Monday and Tuesday.
