New pastry shop opens in Central Ballard

In the small space along Market St. once occupied by Cafe Sweet Posie, in the diagonal alley between Azteca and Anchor Tattoo, a new pastry shop called Pauline’s has just opened for business.

Owner Stephanie Hardgrave, who has sold pastries at the Magnolia Farmers Market as “Little Luxuries,” named the new shop after her grandma. Hardgrave is the third vendor from local farmers markets to open a fixed location in recent months (along with Veraci Pizza and Anita’s.)

Among the tasty treats: pecan bites and harvest chocolate cake. Most cookies are .75 each. Hardgrave is also putting together a rack of products from other local producers, like truffles and toffee. Pauline’s is closed on Mondays.
