ST. JOHNSVILLE -- Last Saturday morning, Dec. 7, the St. Johnsville Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Bridge Street Bakery and Cafe, open exactly three weeks that day.

Christmas music poured out the front of the business, the inside of which has been newly revitalized and refurbished over the summer by Owner Lesha Dolan's family and friends, with help from members of the community.

The Bridge Street Bakery and Cafe was abuzz with business, patrons filling nearly every table, sharing conversations and the wide selection of products available, including daily fresh baked bread, home made doughnuts and pastries, and light breakfast and lunch items, including soups and "special sandwiches," according to Dolan.

The business quickly sold out of certain unique pastries, including a cupcake with bacon as an ingredient, which Dolan said customers keep coming back for more of.

The Bridge Street Bakery and Cafe will be opened daily through the holidays, from 6 a.m. to around 2 p.m. "If I'm in there, the door is always open," said Dolan, who noted that she might close one day a week after the holiday season, but which day is yet to be determined.

Dolan said that since she opened, and even during the construction process, members of the community have been "very supportive."

Mayor Bernie Barnes, having breakfast with residents following the ribbon cutting, stated, "the village is really excited about having a bakery here and we really want to see it do well."

Dolan, who employs five at her business, specializes in cookie platters, which are available for the holiday season. The Bridge Street Bakery, located at 10 Bridge St., also makes local deliveries. Contact the business at (518) 568-8023.
