Rocket Baby launches satellite in Bay View

Seems like just yesterday that Rocket Baby Bakery launched into Wauwatosa and changed the way the neighborhood thought about artisan bread.

But, after just two years of service in the Wauwatosa community, the bakery has announced it will open another satellite location in Bay View at 2452 S Kinnickinnic Ave. in the ground level of the Dwell Bay View housing complex.

Those who are familiar with the business shouldn't be surprised. The bakery's growth – both as a retail café and in the wholesale market – has been both quick and solid. And they've developed a devoted following of fans throughout the city through their production of consistently delicious artisan breads, pastries, and desserts.

"The Bay View Satellite Café seemed like a natural next step for us. It is a great space, right on Kinnickinnic Ave in the heart of the community. We've heard from folks in Bay View that they'd like to see us there, so here we are!" says owner Geoff Trenholme.

The small space – just 575 square feet – will cater primarily to take-out customers. Breads and pastries will be delivered fresh every morning from the Wauwatosa bakery along its signature macarons and other items created by pastry Chef Matt Haase. However, coffee will also be available, along with minimal seating, for those who would like to relax with a croissant and a cup of joe.

The Bay View Satellite Café is targeted to open at the end of April with a grand opening tentatively scheduled for early May. According to Rocket Baby general manager Steve Hawthorne, proposed hours for the Bay View shop will be Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
