On Sunday afternoon First Selectman Fred Camillo joined the director of the Chamber of Commerce Marcia O’Kane and the owners of Raphael’s Bakery for a ribbon cutting to mark the grand opening of what is a dream come true for pastry chef Raphaël Dequeker.
Raphaël’s Bakery is now open at 146 Mason Street, joining Myrna’s and Doppio to round out delicious food options.
Guest enjoyed champagne and samples of Raphaël’s delicious pastries.
Among the crowd were friends of the Dequekers’ sons, Kelian, Bastian and Titouan, as well as downtown denizen RTC chair Dan Quigley, Pemberwick Glenville Association chair Andrea Blume, and Diane Roth from Allied Property Group who helped the Dequekers find the space on Mason Street.
During the grand opening, Kelian said since the bakery’s soft opening earlier in the week baguettes, croissants, Pain au chocolats, and brioches had been selling out daily.
