Dempsey Bakery is celebrating its grand opening on Saturday, Oct. 29. The gluten-free bakery is located at 323 Cross Street, next door to the Diamond Bear Beer Brewery. From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., the bakery will offer its usual selection of gluten-, nut-and/or soy-free baked goods—veggie and chicken pies, sugar cookies and breakfast pastries have been early big sellers—and Big Daddy’s Dogs will be out front selling hot dogs with Dempsey’s gluten-free hot dog buns.

Dempsey is open 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday. The bakery keeps a web presence on Twitter at @DempseyBakeryLR and on Facebook. The phone number is 375-2257.


Barbara Stockton of Your Mama’s Good Food told us last week that the current projection for the restaurant to reopen in its new location at 215 Center St. (in the Pyramid Place building) is the first week in November.
