Café D’Avignon is a chain of bakery-cafés in New York that specializes in French and American pastries. The chain has become so successful in its region that it will now look beyond New York to a new state.

It has signed a deal with franchisees Alex Nikitin and Maxim Dreev that will bring five locations to the Orlando, Florida area, the first outside of New York.

“It’s very exciting for us to be the first partners with Café D’Avignon, and also the first to expand the concept outside of New York,” says Alex Nikitin. “In a time where the coffeehouse market is saturated with big players, we think Café D’Avignon fills a need for high-quality, handmade breads and pastries served alongside coffee that is equally as good. They’ve experienced decades of success in one of the toughest markets in the country, New York City, so we have no doubt that Café D’Avignon will find prosperity in Florida.”

Café D’Avignon’s menu features sweet and savory freshly-baked pastries, breakfast and lunch sandwiches on homemade breads, classic French quiches, and a coffee from Stumptown Roasters. French classics like croissants, pain au chocolat, and kouign-amann join American favorites like sticky buns, smoked salmon sandwiches, and roasted turkey clubs to form a unique bakery-café concept.
