Belleville (instagram, website, facebook), the new bakery at the intersection of Congress and North Streets on Munjoy Hill, is slated to open today. Chris Deutsch and Amy Fuller are serving croissants (be sure to try-out the chocolate almond) and other traditional French baked goods along with Tandem Coffee in the mornings. The lunch menu includes options like a prosciutto, sharp provolone and giardiniera sandwich and roman pizza.
The couple learned to bake in Paris. Prior to moving to Portland they operated a French bakery food cart in Washington DC called Hot Hot Bakery.
Belleville will be open 7-3 Tuesday through Friday, and 8-3 on the weekend.
