Opening Memorial Day weekend near Bray's Brew Pub, Pretentious Pie Co. in Naples will be owner Nick Benoit's second bakery — his first is Benoit's Bakery and Wine Cellar in Lisbon. Benoit, who seems to have his tongue firmly in cheek for this one, shared his excitement in a Facebook post linked to the company page. He called the upcoming venture "a fun, edgy no limits place" with "a new vibe," live entertainment on Sundays, and a huge deck.
The bakery is promising "some traditional items and some edgy," though the list-in-progress is mostly traditional, with items like donuts and bagels for breakfast, Italians and lobster rolls for lunch, and cheese cake and cannoli for dessert.
Want to join the team? Benoit is currently hiring "pretentious dolls" for "a fun summer job." Just want to help pick a slogan? That's an option too, and you can surely do better than "Flavors that bang your taste buds not your wallet."
