If you’ve been reading this blog for a bit, I’m fairly confident that you’re aware of how fond my household is of neighborhood mainstay, (and uber vegan-friendly to boot) Corina Bakery & Bistro. If you follow local news and/or my Twitter and Facebook feeds, I think you are also aware that on Feb. 23, the bakery moved from its original location on 6th Ave., kitty corner from Infinite Soups to directly next to indie theater the Grand Cinema at the corner of S. Fawcett Ave. and S. 7th St. in the Merlino Arts Center.
The new spot boasts many great features including: much more space, brighter lighting, beautiful windows, and a long table in the back room for group meetings and gatherings. Additionally, later hours have been implemented to accommodate weekenders and filmgoers and the bakery’s made mention of an expanded menu and the addition of beer and wine in the near future. While there’s no official word on what the new food options will be, I’m holding out hope that they will continue their trend of offering up wonderful vegan options and that they will add some heartier, more meal-like options at the cafe.
We stopped by on opening day to snap some photos of the new space.
The new Corina includes a black-and-white tiled (sorry no photo, but check it out – it’s awesome) show room for consultations of cakes/baked goods, and the room includes a view into where the magic happens.
Corina Bakery is now located at 602 S. Fawcett, right next to the Grand Cinema.
Their new hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Local friends, have you been to Corina’s new space yet?
