CIA Bakery Café logo



The CIA Bakery Café in San Antonio is a student-run pop-up featuring a variety of favorite sweet and savory bakery items in addition to new creations, great coffee, delicious wine and signature aguas frescas.


The pop-up CIA Bakery Café was conceived to invoke a uniquely exciting dining experience while giving students familiarity with the daily operations of a bakery. The CIA Bakery Café is a capstone course for CIA San Antonio baking and pastry arts majors graduating with their AAS degrees. Students will operate both the front- and back-of-house of the café under the direction of Master Baker Alain Dubernard, Chef Will Packwood, and Hospitality and Service Management Instructor Amandy Carranza.
