Castle Hills' Malinalli Bakery is Making a Comeback 

Croissants will not be a thing of the past for Malinalli Bakery, which closed the bistro part of its operation at the tail end of 2017.

Instead, the bakery has announced it's reopened its doors to customers seeking an extended coffee menu, hand-rolled croissants and sandwiches as of January 2. The year is already looking up.

First opened in 2013 with interior Mexican favorites and fresh-baked breads and desserts. Though the limited menu means we won't have tortas ahogadas available to nosh on, chef Alan Freeman restructured the business model to "make it more coffee shop/bakery oriented and to-go friendly, and less of a bistro due to the heavy load [they] had during lunch rush and weekends and lack of space."

Enjoy the baked goods while Freeman and company look to set up shop inside a larger location.

The new shop hours will be Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
