Inside Ellie’s walls, we define simple pleasures.

Ellie’s first opened her doors in the winter of 2012 as Ellie’s Bakery on Washington Street. This tiny 7-seat bakery aimed to serve fresh breads, unique pastries, and unparalleled hospitality. Ellie’s quickly became a part of the neighborhood.

Over the years, the menu and team have grown, from testing the perfect croissant daily over the better part of a year to the barista team developing a single-origin coffee program and signature coffee blend. Ellie’s started with the simple mission of nourishing the community and has grown into something greater than anyone could have imagined.

The idea of expanding Ellie’s started when the demand for pastry pushed the baking operation to Hope & Main in Warren, which allowed the team to really dive into pastry production while we searched for a new home for Ellie’s. After years of looking for a place that could bring the bakers back under the same roof, we discovered 225 Weybosset. The stars must have aligned with this opportunity, as 225 Weybosset Street, much like her sister Gracie’s, is directly across the street from a historic theater; in this case the dining room of Ellie’s is illuminated by the marquee lights of PPAC theater. Restoring a building that was constructed in 1920 was no easy task, but has been an incredibly rewarding experience.

We aim to be a soulful eatery that serves as a gathering place for neighbors and a place of rest for visitors. You can start your day with freshly baked pastries and coffees, keep the day going with a wholesome lunch, and settle in for the evening with friends for a glass of wine and a slice of cake.

We can’t wait to serve you – thank you for joining us.
