A bakery and coffee shop of the well-known French bakery and coffee shop Vincent as well as a wine bar Boutique Koneser will appear on the list of tenants of Galeria Młociny being developed between the North Bridge Route and Zgrupowania AK "Kampinos" street. Currently, last finishing works are being carried out in the complex. The opening of the projct co-financed by EPP and Echo Investment is planned in the spring.
Truly French flavours
Vincent’s venues are one of the best bakeries, patisseries and cafes in Warsaw. Elegant and full of the unique atmosphere of French boulangeries places are known for the highest quality bread, for which bakers use imported flour from France and their own sourdough produced according to French recipes and other only natural ingredients associated with French patisseries. Vincent, that opened its first premise 11 years ago at Krakowskie Przedmiescie, is credited with launching the fashion for well quality, original breads in the capital city.
To this day, the specialty of the chain, which consists of 16 locations - twelve in Warsaw, three in Wroclaw and one in Konstancin-Jeziorna - are baguettes and breads baked in accordance with traditional French recipes. At Galeria Młociny, Vincent will occupy nearly 40 sqm and will be situated on the lowest level of the complex.
“Fans of French flavours will have reasons to be satisfied. Well-known and well-liked Vincent will be a tasty break while doing shopping. This spot, which can recreate the unpretentious atmosphere of French bakeries and cafes, will offer you not only fresh and crunchy bread, but also breakfast and freshly roasted coffee, and in the afternoon you can try a cheeseboard. Vincent which is opened in the morning will certainly attract people working in the office part of Galeria Młociny” says Marcin Kopczyk, Senior Leasing Manager at Shopping Centres Department at Echo Investment.
Behind this café-bakery success are also brioches, pain au chocolat, croissants and other sweet pastries. Vincent is also a place where you can drop by for a quick lunch or buy tasty, handmade sandwiches.
