A new bakery co-founded by a 16-year-old is opening in University Park this month.

Co-founded by mother-daughter duo Alison and 16-year-old Ashley Weinstein, Sugar & Sage Bakery is a new bakery opening in University Park this April. The shop is inspired by Ashley, who has a peanut allergy and has always wanted to open a bakery where the kitchen was nut-free. Led by Executive Pastry Chef Jill Bates (Café Momentum) in collaboration with James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Laiskonis, the new spot will offer cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and doughnuts. There will also be a coffee program featuring Dallas-based Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters.
