The Westminster Bakery is coming back

When Dave Bergstrom was looking for a place to located a bakery in Spokane, he thought fondly of growing up in Hillyard. He was coming home after a stint in Alaska at a big commercial bakery - now it was time to get his hands into his own dough.
“My dad had the Westminster Bakery just down the street from here,” said Bergstrom, who's opening a bakery in the Capital Building on Market Street. “His name was Jerry Bergstrom. He passed away in '97, but he had the bakery here in Hillyard for 14 years.”
Dave Bergstrom is starting the business together with his brothers Rick and Mike Bergstrom. They plan to sell donuts, muffins, cookies and cakes at first, and then expand into bread making later.
“It will be retail and we'll have coffee too,” said Bergstrom.
The building is undergoing some restoration and modernization, and the plan is for a grand opening on April 1.
Dave Bergstrom is looking forward to baking and to working with his brothers: “I can promise you it will be fun. Anything we do together has to be fun.”

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
