O’Brien’s Boulangerie moving out of Del Mar

By Karen Billing

O’Brien’s Boulangerie is leaving Del Mar after 24 years.

The decision to move is bittersweet as the bakery has simply outgrown its space as its wholesale business has boomed, according to general manager Sara Escobar, daughter of owner Edgar. Their last business day will be Feb. 15 and they will open a new retail and wholesale business in Escondido.

“There’s no more space for us,” Sara Escobar said. “In order to fulfill our dreams of being a large wholesale facility we have to move to a bigger space. It’s exciting to announce the move, but we are sad to say goodbye to our loyal customers that have had a history of visiting us for the last 24 years.”

O’Brien’s has been in the Del Mar Heights Village Shopping Center, which recently changed its name to Beachside Del Mar, since 1989. Inside was a place for customers to get freshly baked treats, such as baguettes, croissants and Danishes, bagels, Dutch crunch loafs, ciabatta, focaccia, dinner rolls and sourdough bread.

O’Brien’s will continue to supply several hotels and restaurants in Del Mar, including Pacifica, Hotel Indigo, Poseidon and Americana. Its bread is also on the tables at the Grand Del Mar, the Omni Hotel, Manchester Grand Hyatt, the US Grant and the Hilton Bayfront, to name just a few.

The new O’Brien’s will be located at 1445 Simpson Way in Escondido. For more information on the bakery, visit obriensbakerysd.com
