Three Girls Bakery expanding to Ballard

The popular Three Girls Bakery at the Pike Place Market is heading to Ballard for their second retail location.

We spoke with Ryan Gaylord of CW Development, the contractor on the project, who tells us that he’s busy transforming the old Ballard Pet Store on 15th Ave. and 61st St. into the new bakery. He says they’re aiming for a June 1st opening, but with any construction project the date isn’t set in stone. He says that Three Girls has been contracting out their baking, but plans to do all their baking at the new Ballard location and send their fresh breads and pastries down to the Market. Three Girls is well known for their selection of breads, pastries, sandwiches and soups. (Thanks Sarah for the tip!)

Sweet, I love their products.
But, seeing how this is Ballard, will they expand into offering sushi as well?

Finally! That building has been vacant for a very long time, and people have been the empty parking lot as a turn around.
Welcome Three Girls Bakery!

I remember going into the pet store one time (only time and last time) and seeing bird cages full of cockroaches. I don't know how you get those critters out of the walls once they've infested a place!

This will be a great edition to Ballard! Different and useful, their stuff is delicious.
I'm surprised they do not need to cleanse that place with fire or something though – that pet store was grrrroooooosssss.

I feel for the contractor, must be brutal…

That pet store was disgusting. I always felt sorry for the puppies that had to live in that mess. But they've been doing a ton of work inside. And by the smell, using a lot of cleaning liquids. :-)

Haven't tried the Three Girls' goods, but nice to hear of businesses OPENing in Ballard instead of another one biting the dust.

I had never been in that store, but a pet store that sells puppies is usually bad news since the puppies are often mill puppies. It always made me sad to see the big “Puppies for Sale” sign outside the store.

But, in happier news, it'll be great to have a food option on 15th besides the fast food chains already there.

I've always suspected they were puppy mill puppies. But……
Happy to have a bakery there. It's a much better occupant.

Yay!
Now they just need to get rid of that disgusting Taco Del Mar and bring back Baskin & Robins to make it an awesome block for the summer.

When I first read the headline and the former pet store, I thought it was a three “dog” bakery store. I was very confused as to why all of you humans were talking about eating their goods. Now i see, three girls. Definitely excited about that location getting spruced up and it being a bakery.

It sounds wonderful. We will definitely be going there a lot.The place will definitely smell better than it did as a pet shop.

Ice cream shops don't fair to well in Ballard (RIP Baskin Robbins, Ben & Jerry's)…although scoops is good. It's next to Rain City Video on Sunset Hill.

I would personally miss my fish taco's if Taco Del Mar went away.

They are just thinking commercial bakery right? I know they have been looking for a new baking site since their last was lost to redevelopment on Queen Anne. They have done baking off site for years, and only retail site is in Pike Market. It would be cool if they opened up for retail in Ballard, but I didn't read that they are planning to do that.
