The popular French baker, Loic Autret, and his wife Pauline, just opened “Loic” in downtown West Palm Beach.
The bakery/bar/café is super stylish with 22-foot ceilings, smoked mirrors, floor-ceiling windows, and marble-topped high tops. Their whole menu- sandwiches, salads, artisanal breads, cheese platters, croissants, and tarts- is homemade from scratch.
Loic is a chef known for his pastries and his story. After serving in the French military as a paratrooper and minesweeping in Iraq and Cambodia, he decided to take up baking after getting injured. He learned the trade from working at different high-end restaurants around Palm Beach and Miami. He is now very popular around town, selling his confections at the West Palm Greenmarket.
At his new shop, expect to be delighted by freshly baked goods and enjoy a glass of beer, wine or coffee, at their chic bar. Loic is open Tuesday- Sunday from 7 a.m.- 7 p.m. at 480 Hibiscus St. #116 in West Palm Beach.
