The owners of the acclaimed Israeli steakhouse Doris Metropolitan are bringing an elevated bakery to Rice Village this spring.

Badolina Bakery & Cafe, an expansion of Doris Metropolitan’s bread and pastry program, will open this spring at 5555 Morningside Drive, Houston, bringing a made-to-order bake lab with creations from Michal Michaeli, executive pastry chef and partner.


“BĀDOLINA will take you on a journey that you have yet to experience,” Michaeli said in a March 4 announcement. “The textures and combination of flavor profiles are something we are excited to share with you all.”

The 1,500 square-foot bakery is currently under construction and will neighbor Hamsa, a previously announced modern Israeli restaurant also owned by the heads of the Doris Metropolitan, when it opens later this year.

The bakery and cafe will feature flavor profiles from around the world, including Middle Eastern and Israeli baked goods and sweet and savory pastries as well as specialty sourdoughs, croissants, babka and custom-roasted beans for its blended coffee. www.badolinabakery.com
