Soft opening for Bids on the Roof

Thao Luu has opened her pretty Birds on the Roof Bakery & Cafe — but only sort of.

The restaurant at 550 N. Rock Road is in the midst of what she calls a “soft opening.”

For now, it’s open from 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays serving a limited breakfast and lunch menu, plus some baked goods.

Within the next couple of weeks, it will be open late hours, too, as well as on Mondays and Sundays.

It’ll also offer everything it had planned to originally, including lattes intricately decorated on the top and fanciful decorated cakes.

I stopped in a week ago and was impressed by the interior, done up in pinks and whites with modern, playful decor.
