A beloved bakery in the Whitworth University neighborhood of north Spokane has shuttered its doors. A post on Petit Chat Village Bakery’s Facebook page Aug. 10 announced the following:
“It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce we will be closing our doors Sunday. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to serve the North Spokane community for over 10 years. It has been a pleasure to get to know you, and we are proud to have made a difference in your lives over the years.
“Thank you for your love and support.”
Per its Facebook page again, Petit Chat was a bakery that offered “great food and a cozy space for friends to meet.”
“The moment you walk inside Petit Chat, you are overwhelmed by the aroma of fresh-baked bread and cinnamon rolls. If I could buy a Petit Chat candle … I would buy five,” Spokane Eats creator Chandler Baird wrote on Instagram.
Petit Chat’s menu included sweet and savory options, artisan bread and handmade pastries, including croissants, as well as hot and cold sandwiches, the turkey cranberry sandwich among the favorites.
Petit Chat’s awards included making the list of Washington’s 10 Best Bakeries. “This bakery gives you some finely brewed coffee and a cool and welcoming atmosphere to hang out in. Recline on one of their lazy sofas and enjoy quality time with friends,” wrote blogger Ian Brookwell in his ranking of the 10 Best Bakeries in Washington.
Petit Chat offered gluten-friendly items, and its baked goods also were available at Huckleberry’s Fresh Market, My Fresh Basket and several restaurants in Spokane.
