Little Bird Patisserie Takes on Taste of Sask

posted by My Saskatoon    |   July 13, 2015 15:01

Coming back for their second time, Little Bird Patisserie & Cafe is excited for another year of exposure and a profitable week to their business at Taste of Saskatchewan.  Kim Butcher, owner and baker, says that  "The neighbourhood (20th Street) is changing so quickly right now that there is always an influx of new people stopping by the shop but each spring has always proven to be very busy and the winter months is when things slow down. Being a vender in the festival is a big cash injection for the bakery so it fuels us to keep going in the leaner months," says Kim. Bringing back some of last year's favourites, the french macron flavours are vanilla, salted toffee and pistachio and the sweet crepes are cinnamon sugar and lemon sugar.

Rather than having  a drink  like the year before, a gluten-free savoury crepe is new to the menu, offering people of Saskatoon a lunch item option. With bacon and caramelized onions topped with gruyrere cheese, arugula and roasted garlic dressing, this item will be a hit down by the river this week! When asked what sets Little Bird Patisserie & Cafe apart from other bakeries and cafes in Saskatoon, Kim says, "We don't consider ourselves restaurant style service. We have very simple service with a variety of items that are baked fresh daily. Some of our items you can get throughout Saskatoon but the difference here is the huge selection of the delicacies that we love so much." Kim and her staff are hoping for good weather this week and are looking forward to the break away from the shop, they had  a lot of fun last year and are expecting it to be the same this time!

If you are looking to try Little Bird Patisserie & Cafe's  famous french macrons or would like a sweet or savoury crepe, find their tent at Taste of Saskatchewan from Tuesday-Sunday this week! They are open from 11:00am-10:30pm on Tuesday and then until 11:30pm for the rest of the week, closing at 8:00pm on Sunday when the festival is finished. Little Bird Patisserie & Cafe is located at back row, closest to the river and the first row in front of the Bessborough Hotel, you don't want to miss this tent this summer!
