Beth Biundo Sweets (3917 Baronne St., 504-899-0859), a new cafe and bakery from longtime Lilette pastry chef Beth Biundo, is now open.

The bakery, which opened Wednesday in the former Cleaver & Co. location on Baronne St., sells a variety of Biundo’s sweets and baked goods, including cakes, cupcakes, cookies, tarts, and ice cream sandwiches, among other items.
Biundo, who studied at New York’s French Culinary Institute, was the pastry chef at Lilette for 10 years before deciding on a mid-career switch to interior design in 2013. But she never fully left the pastry business, and quickly started popping up at bake sales and markets across town, eventually launching a specialty cake business by appointment.

The Baronne Street cafe is her first brick-and-mortar shop, and functions as a place to pop in and grab coffee — from local roasters Congregation Coffee Roasters — and a cupcake, or grab a last-minute larger cake for a special occasion. Special order cakes still are available, as well.

The bright space features tall ceilings and a handful of tables. There is also a selection of local cards, candles and gifts from local artists for sale.

Beth Biundo Sweets is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit Biundo's website here.
