Keep Austin Local: Crema Bakery and Cafe

Learn about this South Austin spot where you can enjoy coffee, cakes, pastries and more.

AUSTIN, Texas — We’ve seen many businesses shutting down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. KVUE wants to help keep Austin local by highlighting small businesses that might need a little help. 

This time, KVUE stopped by Crema Bakery and Cafe, a South Austin spot that has been open for seven-and-a-half years. 

The owner, Jessica Tomberline, told KVUE they were getting ready to open a new location, but unfortunately were not able to due to the pandemic. COVID-19 also forced the bakery to pause on selling their wholesale items.
