With all the new bakeries popping up in Raleigh you might miss out on Night Kitchen Bakehouse & Cafe. Which would be a shame because it’s pretty darn good. Not as fancy as lucettegrace but good in its own way!
Located in Seaboard Station around the corner from J. Betski’s, Night Kitchen Bakehouse is pretty unassuming up front. Inside the space opens up quite a bit, communal table in the middle a nice counter in back with the pastries along with a bread display. While Yellow Dog around the corner focuses on da bread, I feel that Night Kitchen skews more towards the pastries which is fine by me!
I ask the nice lady up front for a recommendation and I end up getting a bostok pastry and coffee. The bostok is a sweetened bread covered with almonds and a dusting of confectionary sugar. And it is GOOD! Just the right amount of sweet and butter, paired up with my coffee I was a happy boy. I enjoyed my first visit to Night Kitchen and think they’ll do well as long as they can get the word out. With a nice selection of tasty sweets, savory breads and more, they should be popular and have the space to take advantage of a bigger crowd. Rock on, Night Kitchen!
