New bakery opens in downtown Raleigh

Posted November 24, 2014

LucetteGrace is located at 235 S. Salisbury St. in Raleigh.

— Former Umstead pastry chef Daniel Benjamin has opened his new bakery in downtown Raleigh. 

On Monday, lucettegrace opened its doors at 235 S. Salisbury St. with a tasty selection of breakfast pastries and sweet bakery items, including eclairs. 

I had the Bourbon Pecan Pie Croissant and it was delicious! Just sweet enough and had a great pie filling in the middle. I can't wait to go back and try the Dixie Cannonball, which is basically a warm biscuit that has warm scallions, hoop cheddar, breakfast sausage and is served with cream gravy inside of it.

And of course, they are serving Larry's Beans coffee with your choice of a variety of flavor infusions. I got Escazu chocolate in mine. 

Lucettegrace will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and then 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays. For now, they will remain closed on Sundays.

The menu will include just sweet and savory pastries, muffins and croissants for now, but Benjamin will be expanding to include breakfast and lunch items.

    I wish there was a good Italian bakery around here. And a real deli. I would drive an hour if there were.

    So they're open 24 hours M-F? I bet they don't know that.
