Dig in, dear Burg. Valhalla Bakery was one of the most celebrated pop up concepts at Baum Avenue Market, and soon it’s opening its own brick-and-mortar bakery in the Grand Central District.

That’s right, Valhalla’s return to the Sunshine City is imminent. The owners announced that it would soft open on Sunday, March 8 in an Instagram post. Doors at its new 2464 Central Avenue location will open at 10am that day.

The bakery began in the city of Orlando and is well known for its massive cinnamon rolls, chocolate chunk cookies, and artisanal whole cakes.

Valhalla sets roots in the Sunshine City

How committed are the owners to St. Pete?

On Thanksgiving they drove Thanksgiving pies from Orlando to the ‘Burg to satisfy hungry Sunshine City residents. We love you, Valhalla.

Valhalla is a standout, award-winning bakery in the competitive culinary scene in Orlando, and it fits perfectly into the bursting business scene in the Grand Central District.

Recent additions to the neighborhood also include Tombolo Books, a locally-owned indie bookstore from Alsace Walentine and Candice Anderson, and Floribbean, a Caribbean fusion concept from Andy Saylards and Sal Merola.

Lucy’s Vegan Corner opening next door

Need something sweet to whet your appetite?

I recommend you follow the bakery on Facebook and Instagram for updates on bakery specials and a grand opening timeline.

Valhalla is in good company. Right next door, Lucy’s Vegan Corner is set to open soon.

A Baum Avenue Market Boom

This blogger has dearly missed the mushroom asado street tacos (please bring these back!) and has been dying to dig into the falafel once more.

Dear Lucy, life ain’t the same without your popcorn of the week. The banh mi also received rave reviews from customers.

These two foodie legends make that stretch of Central, which is also home to the recently opened Curated Heat, one of the most delicious spots in the Sunshine City.
