“Two Fat Cats Bakery”is relocating to Lancaster Street in Portland at the end of March 2019. Currently the immensely popular Bakery is tucked away at 47 India Street and there is also one located at 740 Broadway Street in South Portland that will not be affected according to baker Colin Scott this afternoon.
The reason for the relocation stems from a rent increase from the landlord Lois. (Mhn.com has had interactions with her son, Joe, a manager at the Boulos Company and they were not pleasant).
The 175 Lancaster Street location will have seating for customers who would like to linger a while over their pie or cookies in a pleasant surrounding according to Scott who attended culinary school in Rhode Island. The much larger space could permit their menu to expand as well.
“Two Fat Cats” has received wide recognition nationally for its baking traditions and techniques. Some pr has appeared in “The Boston Globe”, “Yankee Magazine,” Conde Nast Traveler, “People Magazine” “Bon Appetit” and “The New York Times.”
The India Street bakery is closed on Monday.
