When Jennifer Bezdek started attending the San Francisco Baking Institute in 2015, she said she noticed a lack of local French bakeries in Frisco. After graduating, Jennifer addressed the gap by starting Tulla Patisserie & Cafe alongside her husband, Brian, in July 2018.

The bakery on Teel Parkway offers artisan breads, pastries and French- and American-inspired viennoiseries—which are flaky pastries, such as croissants—as well as an assortment of coffees. Jennifer describes Tulla Patisserie & Cafe as a neighborhood bakery.

“I wanted to go really deep into offering the classics,” Jennifer said. “And having the neighborhoods and kids here grow up tasting great, classic French pastries as well as breads.”

As head baker, Jennifer spends much of her time baking these breads along with pastries, viennoiseries and cakes. She said most breads and viennoiseries take three days to complete, and several bread starters are made every day in-house.

Customers can get a front-row seat to the process. Jennifer said the bakery’s open floor plan was intentionally designed to showcase the dedication in her staff’s work.

“Customers come in and can see the work we do, the craftsmanship involved in producing croissants and sourdough breads and even just putting pastries together,” Jennifer said.

Brian said all breads and pastries are made from scratch, along with the soups and sandwiches. He said though Tulla Patisserie & Cafe is not the only bakery to make its products by hand, it stands on its own in Frisco.

“Here in the area, a lot of what we have is franchises, big corporate-type restaurants and bakeries,” Brian said. “And you lose some of that.”

Brian said the bakery sees loyal customers from across North Texas. But he said the support of Frisco’s neighborhoods is one of the strongest.

“There’s people that want to gravitate toward the sense of community here in Frisco and supporting neighborhood bakeries ... [and] family-owned business,” Brian said. “It’s something I think is a little more unique in this area given the kind of growth we’ve seen here in Frisco.”
