Chef Justin is not only an acclaimed pastry chef, but also a culinary writer and recipe developer. Self-taught, Justin was at the helm of two of America’s best restaurants - Kindred and Hello, Sailor, both part of the Kindred Restaurant Group, in addition to serving as the service manager. He has established himself as a leading Southern baker with a distinct voice and style. Named one of the 10 Southern Bakers by Bake from Scratch, Justin has been featured by Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, Eater, Garden & Gun, and The Local Palate.

As a LGBTQ advocate and voice for change in kitchen culture, Justin's Eater article "Homophobia Almost Made Me Quit Being a Chef" gained national attention.
Bonjour Y’all Bakery strives to marry French comfort food with the flavors of Southern nostalgia. Think traditional French sweets like the traditional macaron with a Southern twist - flavors like sweet tea, strawberry pretzel salad, or sweet potato casserole. Our hand-laminated croissants and baguettes can send you to the street cafes of Paris and then our cobblers and biscuits can bring you back to Nana's and the flavors of Charleston and New Orleans.
The bakery handcrafts pastries, baked goods, breads, and desserts daily, accompanied by a selection of craft beers and a carefully curated wine portfolio.
"My kids ( 7 and 4) ate an entire baguette and claimed it was the best bread they've ever had!"
