Daisy Cakes, the beloved Durham pastry truck, will hopefully open a storefront location late this fall in downtown Durham, according to owner Tanya Catolos.
"We're really excited," Catolos said this morning on the phone.
Tanya and her husband Conrad Catolos, who are both chefs, have been operating their pastry business out of a gleaming Airstream trailer for several years. Last year, they raised $20,000 via Kickstarter toward opening a brick-and-mortar location.
The business will be located at 401A Foster Street, right next door to the Bull City Arts Collaborative. (It's a smart location given it is so close to the Durham Farmers' Market and the couple started their business by parking a couple blocks away on Saturdays.)
Catolos says they will serve breakfast pastries, smoothies, Counter Culture coffee and savory items for lunch. Catolos says they hope to eventually serve brunch and maybe offer tea one day a week.
There's no need to worry: the Airstream trailer isn't going anywhere. Catolos says they may park it outside on Saturday mornings for quick coffee service and will use it for special events.
