Coming Soon For Montclair’s Sweet Tooth: Marcel Bakery & Kitchen; Vanillamore Dessert Kitchen; and Sweet Kitchen


Fans of Mishmish Cafe can experience a new creation from owner and executive chef Meny Vaknin, when Marcel Bakery & Kitchen opens in Upper Montclair’s former Cozy End space. The Mediterranean-style eatery will serve breakfast, lunch and fresh baked goods made with seasonal and locally sourced food. Drop by this Saturday, August 26, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. for pre-opening event.

Outrageous desserts (think chocolate salami, s’mores candy bars) are the hallmark of Vanillamore Dessert Kitchen, located at 349 Bloomfield Ave. right by Montclair’s newest taco spot, Tacoria on Bloomfield Ave., near Willow.
