Pizza, often the answer to life’s problems, proves a lifeline for one Mid-City bakery | Where NOLA Eats

Adella Miesner

Good bakeries make great pizza. That’s an adage proving true at Mayhew Bakery these days.

Here, pizza has also made a difference for a young neighborhood business through the pandemic.

Pizza joined the lineup of breads, pastry and pies as proprietor Kelly Mayhew sought different ways to keep his shop afloat. It has quickly become a star item for the bakery. It’s helped Mayhew expand his hours and even hire back staff who lost their jobs earlier in the crisis.


Mayhew Bakery on Orleans Avenue is a bake shop and cafe for bread and pastries.

Mayhew’s pizza is nothing fancy. It’s just well done, following the thin-crust, New York-style model, and that will always get people’s attention.

The crust is crisp but still pliant; foldable, but not floppy. The outer ring of crust has a light crackle when you bite in, and it has a

West Point bakery C. Allen Confections expanding, opening a Main Street store, despite pandemic

Adella Miesner

A mere three months after C. Allen Confections began selling baked goods out of Colonial Kitchen, owner Courtney Maltese’s bakery has gained so many clients that the restaurant no longer has enough space to share.

“Right now I’m not doing anything else out of Colonial Kitchen,” Maltese said in a phone interview, although the restaurant may take cakes for dessert again once C. Allen Confections’ own building opens up.

Maltese said that her bakery “grew too fast, which is not a bad problem to have,” Maltese said.

“I think that the small businesses in the area have done a really good job recently of working together,” and “promoting themselves as a unit,” rather than individually, said Sam Drewry, vice president of the Chamber of Commerce.

Drewry also noted the interest generated by C. Allen Confections at the pop-up markets Maltese attended over the summer in a phone interview.

Buena Gente Cuban Bakery on Clairmont

Adella Miesner

The brick-and-mortar expression came in August: a welcome slice of old-school Miami, sandwiched between the Po’Boy Shop and Community Q in Decatur.

Five mornings a week, the cafe brews coladas (three shots of espresso, traditionally shared and sipped from tiny shot glasses), cortaditos (two shots with steamed milk) and cafe con leches — perfect jolts for pairing with a heavenly pastelito or papa rellena (fried potato ball stuffed with picadillo).

Because the shop was imagined as a tiny spot with just a few tables and mostly takeout, “we didn’t have to do some huge pivot,” Antich said, though COVID-19 did wreak havoc on the construction schedule.

For now, there are two tables out front — that’s it.

How This Mexican Bakery Stays Strong In San Antonio Despite The Pandemic

Adella Miesner

In 2019 the United States Census Bureau reported that 64.2% of the population in San Antonio was Hispanic or Latino. The Alamo City continues to flourish as a cultural melting pot, and Latino-owned businesses keep thriving and contributing to their community which in turn embraces the diverse history of this Mexican American culture wholeheartedly. One of these businesses, which has survived the challenges of the current pandemic, is Mexican artisanal bakery La Panaderia.

Recently named Best Bakery by readers of the San Antonio Current, and a 2020 Traveler’s Choice Winner by Trip Advisor, ranking in the top 10% of restaurants worldwide, La Panadería is a must try when visiting San Antonio.

How do the folks at Companion possess the time or patience to turn out such lovely breakfast and lunch items at their Clayton eatery? Haven’t they enough to do, turning out some 13,000 pounds of breads and pastries daily for dozens of St. Louis restaurants? Yet here’s a scrumptious “Jive Turkey” sandwich (that’s turkey, prosciutto, white Cheddar, roasted yellow onion and chili mayo on country white bread), there’s a gorgeous slice of veggie pizza — and let’s not forget the eggs and French toast at breakfast. And you’ll likely want to take home a treat: The bakery case boasts beautiful cakes, and a loaf of bread (in styles like rye batard, ciabatta, pumpkin-cranberry, or rosemary-olive oil) goes for about five bucks.
