Café is slated to open newest location at Margaritaville’s Sunset Walk this fall
ORLANDO, Fla. (October 9, 2019) – Café d’Avignon, a local NYC bakery and café best known for its artisanal, always-fresh, handmade breads and pastries, is set to open its doors for Orlando locals and tourists this fall. Café d’Avignon was established in 2012 at the historic Plaza Hotel. It was created by the same team behind Pain d’Avignon, an artisanal bread bakery that has been supplying Michelin starred restaurants and top hotels from New York to Boston for the last 25 years. Café d’Avignon operates five retail stores throughout New York City, and will be opening five new locations in Orlando, FL beginning in late 2019. The first new store will be located in the heart of Kissimmee at Central Florida’s most sought-after entertainment complex, Margaritaville’s Sunset Walk. This location will be the first Café d’Avignon store outside of New York City.
“The Café d’Avignon brand is the perfect complement to the serene resort lifestyle of Margaritaville Resort Orlando,” said Alex Nikitin, a partner of Café d’Avignon Orlando. “Committed to quality, the bakery uses top of the line, carefully selected and sourced ingredients to ensure the finest and boldest flavors possible with guaranteed freshness.
Guests can indulge in a range of signature sweet and savory items including quiches, scones, tartines, croissants, breakfast sandwiches, cookies, and more.”
The menu mixes authentic French dishes like Croque Monsieur and Quiche Lorraine with American classics like a Turkey Club and Avocado Toast. The cafe’s bold stand-out crossovers, such as the Baklava Croissant or Banana Bread pudding, really demonstrate Café d’Avignon’s expertise for innovation and delicious precision. The Orlando cafe will also offer the best smoked salmon from one of NYC’s oldest, and highly revered, gourmet shops, Russ & Daughters. These high-end breakfast and lunch offerings are made fresh out of the oven on-site daily.
Additionally, Café d’Avignon crafts classic espresso-based drinks using premium Stumptown Coffee Roasters. The menu features a range of specialty lattes, iced coffees and teas. By offering Stumptown coffee blends, café guests will sip the highest quality coffee that has been sourced and roasted to perfection for outstanding flavor.
The Orlando location invites guests to enjoy menu favorites in a modern, comfortable venue that is furnished with plentiful seating, custom marblework and state-of-the-art equipment. Located at 3260 Margaritaville Blvd. in Kissimmee, the new cafe is right in the middle of the vibrant and entertaining Sunset Walk, overlooking the stage at Sunset Square.
