Whether you’ve had a run-in with Linda from HR or you’re celebrating the fact that skinny jeans have finally fallen out of fashion, there are days when you just have to have a macaron from Bakery Lorraine. The trouble is, unless you live near the Pearl or Medical Center, it’s not always easy to pop in for a quick bite. That’s why we are rejoicing at the news that a third Bakery Lorraine is coming to The Rim shopping center in December.

The new location allows owners Anne Ng, Jeremy Mandrell, and Charlie Biedenharn to expand on the successful formula started at the Pearl. In addition to offering the lauded macarons, buttery croissants, and delicate kouign-amanns, husband and wife chefs Ng and Mandrell are developing new savory treats and lunch specials exclusively for the new location.

Longtime customers shouldn’t worry that they won’t be able to find their favorites, however. Crowd-pleasers like the quiche Lorraine and Greek yogurt breakfast parfait will still be on the menu.

Perhaps the biggest news is that the new location will offer beer and wine. If there’s anything better than bitterly complaining about Linda over a plateful of macarons, it’s bitterly complaining about Linda with a glass of bubbles in your hand.
