Green Bakery & Cafe, the new cafe at the south end of Rancho Shopping Center, might only have opened their doors recently, but the sweet endeavor was years in the making. Jade Luong owns it in partnership with Kevin Chau, who ran Los Altos Bakery & Cafe at the location for 13 years.
Vince Le, the 31-year-old assistant to owner Jade Luong, spoke about the new layout in a familiar location.
“I always wanted to open a unique bakery,” he said. “And this is such a nice place.”
Green Bakery aims to do something different, offering a diverse menu for a diverse demographic. It will remain open in the evenings – they plan to keep the lights on until 8 p.m. – to attract local elementary, middle and high school students.
“Around this area, everything closes around 3 p.m.,” Le said. “We open late to add value in this community, and also so kids have a place to hang out.”
With a broad menu ranging from banh mi to croissants, Green Bakery hopes to hit the older crowd as well. On a weekday afternoon, Sally Keep and Anne Schultz cooled off after a garden club tour with iced teas on Green Bakery’s patio.
