The ladies behind local gluten-free bakery Nuflours sent word this morning they are, at last, opening a brick-and-mortar bakery on Capitol Hill. At 518 15th Avenue E, to be exact.
It’s the former home of North Hill Bakery, and Nuflours founders Amanda Bedell and Phebe Rossi are continuing the building’s 80-year tradition of housing a purveyor of baked goods.
But this time, there’s no wheat. Nuflours (the business that began life as D:floured) makes a range of pastries, cookies, and cakes that are entirely gluten free. The baked goods are a familiar site at farmers markets in Ballard, the U District, and Capitol Hill, and Nuflours will continue making its regular rounds in the community during the buildout.
Bedell and Rossi hope to have their new space open in the spring. And that Nuflours’s brick-and-mortar address will be a bit of a community center and hangout spot.
