Opening alert: Tuts Bakery & Cafe in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Oct 5, 2017
Coffee from Santa Cruz's Verve, fresh-baked bread and tartines are among the menu items at the newly opened Tuts Bakery & Cafe in downtown Palo Alto.

Tuts opened at 535 Bryant St. on Monday, according to the cafe's Instagram. What used to be French restaurant Bon Vivant has been transformed into light-filled space with white subway-tiled walls, globe pendant lights, hanging plants and a bar stocked with baked goods, per Yelp photos. There is both indoor and outdoor seating.

Beyond pastries, cakes and bread, an opening menu pictured on Yelp includes items such as a salmon tartine (smoked salmon with poached eggs and sautéed spinach on homemade sourdough toast), croque monsieur and Greek-style pancakes. There's also a tartine topped with menemen, a traditional Turkish mixture of eggs, tomato, green peppers and spices.

Lunch is served daily from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. with items like housemade meatballs, salads, soups and paninis.

The company plans to open another location soon in San Francisco.
