And they've just announced an opening date: Sunday, May 15 at 8 a.m.
Moving forward, they'll be serving pastries, bread and beverages (coffee and tea) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Real-life couple Dona Murad and Andre Gerschel are behind this operation. The two posted this on the bakery's Instagram account yesterday:
We wanted to thank everyone for the incredible support we've been shown by the neighborhood and larger community these past few weeks. Librae is truly a labor of love and we have been working endlessly to bring it to life.From every corner to every croissant layer, we have obsessed over the details. Librae has to be a reflection of who we are as people, our background, and our experiences.
We both come from a multitude of mixed heritages including Bahraini, Persian, Indian, Moroccan, Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and have lived in Dubai, New York, and Manama. All of these experiences have accumulated into creating what we call a "Third Culture Bakery." After opening concepts in the Arabian Gulf and the UK, we wanted to create something of our own and bring it home.Bahraini hospitality brought us together, Danish technique inspired us, and New York energy feeds us. This fun chaos intertwined is a reflection of us at our core. It's a privilege to be able to open our doors and welcome you into Librae Bakery.
