Bibi’s Patisserie baking on Pinhook

Bibi’s Patisserie is coming to 1321 W. Pinhook Road, the former location of Back in Time Photography. The sweet treats will be free of sugar, gluten and preservatives, and there are a number of vegan and organic offerings.

Before you wonder how something could be delicious without being chock full of the traditional baking fare, try it out. This business began because both Nathan and Hannah Raffels wanted to treat their respective parents to something delicious that wouldn’t exacerbate their diabetes, so after a lot of research and cookbook studying, they discovered that not only would their wares help diabetics, but those suffering from celiac disease as well.

The Raffels have planted a pumpkin patch behind Bibi’s, so come fall fresh pumpkins grown on site will be in the pies and muffins. “We believe that people should know where their food is coming from,” says Nathan. They will also have about a dozen organic teas to choose from, and — sorry — there are no to-go cups. “We have lots of cozy seating,” Nathan adds. “We want people to realize it’s OK to sit down and relax for a few minutes.”

Traditional cinnamon rolls (and those with orange zest), cakes, danishes, naan, croissants, bagels and muffins that come in lemon poppy seed, strawberry, chocolate and banana nut are among the selection. Cookies and brownies, too.

The bakery is scheduled to open in early July. Look for Bibi’s Patisserie to eventually be sold in some local grocery stores as well. Check out its Facebook fan page or give Nathan and Hannah a ring at 356-5645.
