Summer Thyme’s Bakery & Deli is celebrating it’s second anniversary and is expanding its hours until 6pm seven days a week effective immediately. The 4,700-square-foot facility is located at 231 Colfax Avenue in Grass Valley. Summer Thyme’s was a truly turn-key project for Siteline Architecture.
“Summer Thyme owners Chamba and Amy Cooke contacted Siteline as they were beginning the conversion of an empty space to a bakery, commercial kitchen and full dining room. We found collaborating so rewarding, that we continued work with them through planning, finishing specification and construction management. It is a great feeling to work with owners to go from plans to handing them the keys to a brand new site for a business they love and have built over many years.” observes Siteline Architecture partner and project lead, Richard Baker.
The cafe seats more than 100. Summer Thyme’s is a proponent of the farm to table movement and the menu includes vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and paleo options. Food is prepared from scratch, on site, including baked goods. The extensive kitchen, combined with an espresso bar, dining and event space offers a vital destination for this Grass Valley neighborhood.
“Siteline worked with us at every phase. We always felt included in the process. We appreciate Siteline’s help in making our dream of a full dining room, bakery and kitchen come true.” states Amy Cooke, Co-owner, Summer Thyme’s Bakery & Deli.Tags: construction management, espresso bar grass valley, restaurant design
