Coming soon signage recently arrived at 280 E. 10th St. just west of Avenue A. Back in September, an EVG tipster said that the former Cafe Silan space here would become a French bakery.
That part looks correct. The website listed on the sign goes to Patisserie Florentine, the 3-year-old Englewood, N.J.-based bakery-cafe. We reached out to them to learn more about this venture, though we haven't heard back just yet.
Per the bakery's Facebook page:
Patisserie Florentine brings a little of France, Stateside; the French bistro setting is a charming fusion of rustic & modern offering a convivial friendly atmosphere. Chef Tomer Zilkha introduces approachable European delicacies using produce from The Garden State. The artisan bakery & petit bistro is managed by a passionate family of cooks & bakers & genuine hospitality is provided by our Baristas & Waitstaff.
Cafe Silan, which served a variety of coffee and house-made pastries, closed back in July after nearly 18 months in business.
I am looking forward to this. The owners are really nice and welcoming. And the idea of having a French cafe in the hood is awesome. Best of luck to them!
So, Florence is in France now?
Actually, a florentine is a French cookie. Florentine cookies were most likely created in the late 17th century kitchens of French royalty in honour of their Tuscan in-laws. Florentines are still enormously popular cookies world-wide, but a visit to the best of Florence’s pastry shops for these cookies will leave you empty-handed.
I support all cake no matter how you say it... gateau, torta, pastel! Welcome!
Ugh. $13 for a sandwich (and those are NJ prices)
Can we just get a bakery . . . you know just plain old bakery, with bread.
We had a plain old bakery with bread and other simple things humans eat. Unfortunately the food wasn't fussy enough.
It's true: we don't need another croissant shop, we need a really good neighborhood bread maker.

Hope bread is in the mix.
