Rounding out the list of awesome, arts-loving sponsors for this years ArtoberFest are two incredible bakeries in the city. You can’t have an Oktoberfest themed event without some carbs, right? Bringing a little European delicacy to Atlanta, these are two of the best. We thank them for their support and are excited to share their stories with you:
Little Tart Bakeshop
The storefront in Grant Park occupied by both Little Tart Bakeshop and Octane Coffee has long been a favorite of artists from around the city. You can regularly find administrators from local organizations, visual artists, musicians, designers and many others meeting or working over one of their fine pastries. Owner Sarah O’Brien was recently named a James Beard Semi-finalist for Outstanding Baker 2016 for her French style delicacies. Here is the story of Atlanta’s favorite artist-friendly bakery in the words of its illustrious owner:
“On my tenth birthday, my grandmother Sophie gave me a rolling pin and taught me how to make her famous apple pie, with apples from the orchard up the road. I have been baking ever since. Born and raised on an Ohio farm, I have baked in Iowa, Providence, and Canada, and earned my chops working as an intern in two Parisian bakeries. I hope to bring my own little bit of Paris to Atlanta, my adopted and much-loved city, through The Little Tart. I am fanatical about making perfect pastry crusts, and croissants.
I am honored to work with a dedicated team of bakers and servers who work hard everyday to make the best pastry around. We are proud to be a part of the local food community in Georgia, and hope to show through our work that eating sustainably also means eating heathfully, affordably, and most importantly, deliciously.”
