Under Construction: The Purple House

Future site of The Purple House in North Yarmouth.

Urban Eye has posted an update on The Purple House, Krista Kern Desjarlais’ new wood-fired bakery and cafe under construction in North Yarmouth.

Desjarlais, who also runs the seasonal Bresca And The Honey Bee At Outlet Beach in New Gloucester, has a destination in the works. Montreal bagels, a denser, chewiery version of New York City bagels, boiled in honey water and baked under wood heat, will be in heavy rotation. Miche and levain breads made with Maine Grains will be another daily offering. Expect a few pastries, but nothing “fragile and fancy.”

Her famed brown butter almond cake and pannacotta (Bresca holdovers) will be house signatures. Homemade ice cream, which she is known for, will also be in the mix.
