One of downtown Eustis’ historic buildings has been infused with new life -- a sweet new life. In what was most recently an antique mall, a charming French bakery is now set among a treasure trove of vintage finds.
A Wish or Two Ago bakery opened its doors in July and features a mouth-watering selection of sweets, including pastries, cinnamon rolls, French macarons, cookies, coconut macaroons, decadent cakes, creme brulee and more. In addition to sweet treats, the bakery's master baker, who hails from the south of France, also creates about a dozen varieties of fresh, artisanal breads that are also baked on site. Patrons can choose from all-natural rustic rye, French sourdough, mozzarella spinach, Tuscan roasted garlic, cranberry walnut and others.
Francophiles can also browse the many traditional French condiments, bottles of wine, olives, canned mackerel and other epicurean delicacies. Jars of popular Amish jams and fruit butters are also stocked on the shelves.
This isn’t the first time A WIsh or Two Ago has treated area residents to its authentic French baked goods. For several years it was located in Grand Island and had a popular booth at the weekly farmers market in downtown Mount Dora. Now downtown Eustis will serve as its exclusive location.
If you’re eager for A Wish or Two Ago’s fresh baked goods or other products, you’ll need to visit the new location before the owners leave for France later this month to visit family. Otherwise, your sweet tooth will have to wait patiently until they return to baking later this fall. Currently the hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p,m. The bakery is located at 320 S. Grove Street in Eustis.
