Antoinette Baking Co. has made a splash on the Tulsa scene over the last few years with its legendary pie nights. When they were located on Brookside, folks would line up down Peoria just to get a piece of their epic pies.
In 2015, Antoinette made the move to downtown — 207 N. Main in the Brady Arts District — and now also features a small revolving lunch menu. And of course, people still line up for their pie nights. It’s a great spot to go for breakfast, lunch, or of course — a dessert and coffee break.
The atmosphere still falls under inspiration of the French aristocrat for whom the restaurant was named. Unlike Marie Antoinette, though, Antoinette actually does “let them eat cake,” and pies, and brownies, and cupcakes.
I’ve been to the new location twice for lunch, and both times have been exceptional. The first time, I tried the Prosciutto Brie Baguette (above), which was teeming with the
flavors, including apricot jam. More recently, I tried the Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich (right) — a spicy version of the classic sandwich loaded with guacamole. I’m not lying when I say this was the best Chicken Salad Sandwich I’ve ever eaten.
Of course, if you’re going to Antoinette, dessert had better be on your agenda. During
our recent visit, my husband indulged in the Brownie (above). He also wasn’t lying when he said it was the best brownie he’s ever eaten. Fudgy and topped with edible glitter and a Reese’s mini peanut butter cup, it was simply heavenly.
I tried the Chocolate Eclair Bar. Who doesn’t love Chocolate Eclairs? And let’s be honest…it’s easier to eat when in a bar form. It was delightlful.
Of course, you must keep Antoinette in mind when planning a special event that needs some sweet treats. Their pies, cake, and macarons are available for purchase and will really impress your guests — both their appearance and flavor.
You can also stop by Antoinette for breakfast. Now that they’re located downtown, it’s especially convenient to swing by on the way to work, if you work in the downtown area. Items like scones, cinammon rolls, muffins, and sausage rolls will greet your nostrils as you step in. Recently, I tried the Pimento Cheese Biscuit (left) for breakfast — a fresh, garlicy biscuit filled with scrumptious pimento. Yum!
