Eastside Bakery, for years a well-regarded provider of baked goods, has just opened on the corner of 15th and Harrison Street, in the heart of the Hilltop Campus Village.

“We are just so excited to be here; it just feels right.” said owner and baker Nikki La Tray. “We remain close to our valued customers, and now have the visibility to attract more business. This gets us close to lots of churches, schools and residential neighborhoods, all of whom we look forward to serving.”

The new space is across the street from the new Harrison Lofts residential/commercial complex, and just north of the Hilltop Plaza.

“This project involved many people, each putting the extra effort in to make it work.”, said Hilltop Campus Village director Scott Tunnicliff. “Nicky came looking for space at the behest of one of the churches in our area. We ran a few location options by her, and she fell in love with this older, really cool building. From there it was a matter of her dealing directly with the owner and the city to make it happen.”

The Hilltop Campus Village has conducted multiple surveys of students, residents and employees in the area asking what type of service business were most desired. According to Tunnicliff, a bakery and a place to serve fresh pizza were at or near the top of the list.

Ms. LaTray has been in business for several years and has a loyal following. “People love our bakery items, as well as our pizza. They didn’t want to see us move, but I they understood our situation. I opened this morning, and was nearly sold out by 11:00am. That’s a good sign.”
