and we know where we are going for lunch today.

From the team that brought you Wiltshire Pantry (one of the top rated catering companies in the state) and Wiltshire on Market (a solid favorite in NuLu’s hot restaurant row) adds another venue that is sure to please.  The appropriately named Wiltshire Pantry Bakery and Café is located at what was most recently Joe Davola’s (901 Barret Avenue), just down the road from the former Lynn’s Paradise Café.

The architect behind all things “Wiltshire”, Susan Hershburg, explained it best in an earlier email to us —

“Building upon the overwhelming success of our Douglas loop farmers market booth, we are launching a retail bakery and cafe featuring the wonderful creations of our lead baker Deanna Rushing.”

“We will be offering an extensive selection of breakfast pastries, artisan breads and brioche as well as light breakfast and lunch fare. We will concentrate on “grab and go” menu items as seating will be very limited. Our catering team, under executive Chef Casey Broussard, will be preparing a selection of soups, salads and sandwiches as well as breakfast entrees.”

Here is a sampling of their sandwich menu:

Baguette: “Italian Sub” – House Made Mortadella, La Quercia Speck, Creminelli Soppresatta, Aged Provolone, Pepperoncini, Shaved Red Onion, Aioli, Red Wine Vinaigrette $7

Focaccia: Marinated Roast Beef Cooked Medium Rare, Horseradish Aioli, Extra Sharp Cheddar, Arugula, Grilled Red Onion Jam $8

Brioche: Grilled All Natural Chicken Salad – Celery, Parsley, Lemon Aioli, Leaf Lettuce $8

Rye: Wiltshire Rueben – House Cured Smoked Stone Cross Farms Brisket, Kraut, Spicy Brown Mustard, Emmentaler Cheese, Smoked Tomato Aioli $8

Wheat: Cucumber, Sprouts and Avocado with Oven Roasted Tomato Hummus $7

Soup and ½ Sandwich is $8

Soup and ½ Salad is $8

½ Sandwich and side Salad $7.50

F&D has followed baker Deanna Rushing for some time. Her days at the Douglas Loop Farmers Market made it a “must stop” every Saturday… now we don’t have to wait until Saturdays to pick up her tasty baked goods.


Hours: Tuesday – Sunday 8am – 3pm

Address: 901 Barret Avenue, Louisville, KY. (
