CENTERBURG — A new bakery swept into Centerburg Thursday filling the void of sweet treats left by the closing of Kristi’s Bakery at the end of June.

Owners Brad and Lacey Butcher had been trying to open The Burg Cafe & Bakery at the same location as Kristi’s Bakery, 18 W. Main St., all week, when, finally, the coffee equipment they had been waiting for arrived Wednesday.

“You can’t have a cafe without coffee,” Brad Butcher joked.

Butcher explained that, to start out, a limited menu will be offered. The menu will be similar to Kristi’s Bakery with donuts, muffins and cookies, as well as sausage gravy and biscuits and breakfast sandwiches. But, visitors will also find new favorites on the menu including cold brew coffee and cinnamon rolls. As Butcher is “more of a pie baker,” pies will replace the cakes that Kristi’s Bakery created.
