Actress/model/journalist and San Antonio-native Elizabeth Chambers and her husband, actor Armie Hammer (who spent his formative years in Highland Park) open Bird Bakery this Saturday, March 31.
The Alamo Heights sweet spot will serve coffee, tea, pastries, and yummy cupcakes all inspired by Chamber's grandmother's recipes. The location makes it easy to grab and go, coffee in hand, to my fave Broadway shops Pagoda, Penny Lane, Lee Lee Shoes, and sloan/hall, which BTW has moved into the gorgeous historic Mobil station a few blocks down from its original location.
If anyone makes it to Bird, let me know how it is. It's the first place I'll go to next time I'm in SA to see my family.
