Locally owned business Southern Dough Baking Co. will open in the second or third week of February in downtown Katy at 908 Ave. B.

The scratch-made Southern cafe will offer lunch and dinner options, including chicken-fried steak, sandwiches, burgers and homemade pies, General Manager Tony Grassau said. Southern Dough Baking Co. will make everything in-house, including its own bread, he said.

Additionally, the eatery will also serve Blue Bell Ice Cream and offer gluten-free sandwiches and sweets, he said.

“We’re happy to do something in old town Katy,” Grassau said. “We’re just trying to be part of the revitalization of old town Katy.”

Southern Dough Baking Co. is a new concept from longtime Houston-based restaurateurs Larry Martin and Edgar Carlson, who own Baker St. Pub & Grill, Local Pour and Watson's House of Ales. www.thesodough.com
