Magazine Street Dessert Shop Favorite Officially Reopens Under New Ownership

If you’ve been missing Macaroons as much as we have, then you are in luck. One of our favorite dessert shops, Sucre, has returned back to its home on Magazine Street. The boutique bakery officially reopened this Saturday, Dec. 5, after having shut its doors in 2019. The opening comes one month after the company announced its return on Instagram.

Sucre’s history was not in favored light after abruptly closing its doors in 2019, and keeping almost 80+ employees in the dark during the closure. 

Since that time, new business owner Ayesha Motwani and executive pastry chef Ashley McMillian have restored the Sucre name and the store’s flagship location in the lower garden district. McMillian previously served as an executive pastry chef under the past ownership, and is looking forward to the new day’s Sucre is embarking on. 

The new Sucre will retain all the original flavors. Sweets and gelato will also be made in-house from scratch, with chocolate sourced from Switzerland. Sucre opens at 7 a.m. daily, until 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and until 9 p.m. on Sunday.
