Late Winter News

Floriole Cafe & Bakery
What’s New at Floriole
The bakery is looking spiffy with fresh paint and updated menu boards. We are so happy with the results and hope you will enjoy the refreshed space. We will continue to update the space throughout the year. Keep your eyes peeled for more changes.


Some items on the menu have changed to reflect the produce of the season.  Just to name a few, there is a satisfying warm and hearty braised brisket tartine, avocado toast highlights bright winter citrus, and the roasted turkey sandwich includes butternut squash hummus and cranberry sauce.
March will bring some fun additions to the pastry line up. Irish soda bread will make an appearance around St. Patrick’s Day and Boston brown bread will be on the menu all month.
