Tulle Bakery opened its doors in October of 2008. Located in the eclectic and popular 9th & 9th neighborhood of Salt Lake City, it has garnered the city's top dining honors and welcomed a host of regulars and casual passersby, alike.
Exquisitely crafted cakes and an assortment of classic baked goods fill stainless steel cases in the light filled modern-yet-rustic interior of the red sandstone building—formerly home to candy and chocolate shops. Owner Leslie Seggar crafted Tulle Bakery's menu to focus on pure, high quality ingredients that flow seamlessly with the decor. The results are wonderful croissants and many other morning pastries, hot-pressed sandwiches, cakes, tarts, and cookies, all mingling with reclaimed wood tables, floor-to-ceiling windows, and vintage French bread boards. Gourmet coffee, espresso, and specialty teas are also highlights. Overall, the bakery has a pleasant communal feel on the tree-lined street it occupies.
Tulle Bakery tries to source from local vendors when possible, and uses natural (hormone-free) milk and cream, fresh eggs, sweet cream butter, premium chocolate - including Scharffen Berger and Valrhona - and pure vanilla. The menu shifts periodically in order to emphasize seasonal ingredients and specialty items.
Tulle Bakery is active in the local community, including being a sponsor of, and having a booth each year, at the Salt Lake Downtown Farmer's Market, participating in Taste of the Wasatch, and making donations to a variety of local organizations.
