Fans of the icing drizzled, gluten-free doughnuts offered at many coffee shops, co-ops and farmers markets around town have reason to rejoice. Sift Bakery will sell those and other celiac-safe goodies inside its new shop that is coming together at 4557 Bloomington Avenue in Minneapolis. The former Sister Sludge coffee shop is being converted into the baked good space that will sell, in addition to the doughnuts, scones, cookies, cinnamon rolls, brown butter rice crispy treats alongside a serious coffee service, according to City Pages.
Baker and shop owner Molly Miller adopted a gluten-free diet to combat her Crohn’s disease, an affliction she was diagnosed with at the age of 13. She knows that gluten-free isn’t a fad or some new-fangled diet, but a real and serious dietary shift.
Sift had been operating out of the City Food Studio space on Chicago Avenue in South Minneapolis.
Once open, the new bakery will offer 20 seats inside its small space and a stocked case with goodies ready to go.
The expected opening date is mid-November and the hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. weekdays, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Saturdays, and 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sundays.
