Sopan “T.K.” and Lisa Tike, the popular husband-and-wife duo who own and operate Lilah’s Bakery at 1718 Centenary Boulevard, are proud to announce the upcoming opening of Lilah’s Broadmoor Bunnery at 3950 Youree Drive in Shreveport.
The new cinnamon bun bar and bakery, which is currently projected to open in early- to mid-December, is located in the Broadmoor Shopping Center near Papa John’s. Lilah’s Broadmoor Bunnery will be open year-round as a cinnamon bun bar and a place for customers to order and pick up king cakes. The location also offers Lilah’s patrons something that they’ve never had before: a drive-thru window. Anticipated hours of operation at opening are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
“We’ve had this in mind for two or three years, but we knew it wouldn’t work at our current location,” said Lisa Tike, co-owner of Lilah’s Bakery. “We finally decided to lease a space in September.”
Every day, Lilah’s Broadmoor Bunnery will serve their “world famous” original cinnamon buns, as well as several limited-time-only seasonal buns. Lilah’s Broadmoor Bunnery will also serve a rotating calendar of specialty buns, including gluten-free and vegan options, while offering creative customers a made-to-order “build-your-own bun” option featuring an assortment of toppings.
The opening of Lilah’s Broadmoor Bunnery will not affect the operations of Lilah’s Bakery in Highland, which will continue to open seasonally for king cakes. Lilah’s king cakes will continue to be available at dozens of retail locations through Shreveport-Bossier, as well. Lilah’s Bakery at 1718 Centenary Boulevard will open for the 2021 Carnival season on Saturday, Jan. 2.
