Bringing over 30 years of culinary expertise and a shared passion for French culinary methods, Noelle and Daniel Martinez, a dynamic husband-and-wife duo, are making their mark on Wrightstown Road.
The locally-owned, from-scratch French bakery on Tucson’s east side, Cafe Francais, has been warming bellies with their made in-house croissant dough — pastries that take three days to laminate, shape, and eventually bake. The bakery is not just limited to croissants; they consistently whip up an array of pastries, cookies, and freshly baked bread.
There’s a bustling scene of culinary creativity happening at Cafe Francais and now there’s a new group of winter-themed pastries to order from Thursday, November 30 – Sunday, December 24.
Keep scrolling to see the new additions and it’s likely your stomach will start grumblin’ for you to pay a visit as soon as possible.
At the bakery, there’s plenty of seating inside at a table or at the bar, and the patio is also an option for those seeking an outdoor breeze. They’re open from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Thursday – Sunday so stop by, grab a pastry, and sip on some coffee. They’re currently offering beverages like cappuccinos, americanos, lattes, and even a cold brew.
Keep an eye out for the New Year Menu which is set to debut on Thursday, January 4, and will run through the end of February.
