Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will open a new bake shop, the Borgata Baking Company, under the direction of Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois. The shop will be located in the casino’s retail plaza and offer “accessible sweets and eats.”

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will open the Borgata Baking Company next month inside its Retail Piazza.

The baked-goods shop will offer savory and sweet items around the clock, the casino said in a press release, and will serve products house-made by Borgata’s award-winning Executive Pastry Chef, Thaddeus DuBois.

According to the release, “guests may choose from classic desserts like Napoleons and Éclairs; fun pastries like Cake Pops, Whoopie Pies, and French Macarons; Pullman Sandwiches and warm breakfast pastries such as Cheesesteak Croissants; in addition to Illy Coffee, fresh-pressed juices, gluten-free and sugar-free options. Borgata Baking Company will also serve a variety of fresh gelato prepared in-house by Chef DuBois’ team of culinary talents.

“Borgata has continued to evolve throughout its decade-long position as the leading culinary destination in Atlantic City,” said Joe Lupo, senior vice president of operations for Borgata. “Under the direction of Borgata’s Vice President of Food & Beverage, Becky Schultz, Executive Chef, Tom Biglan, and Executive Pastry Chef, Thaddeus DuBois, this concept was designed to create a different, yet delectable option for our customer base. Borgata Baking Company’s accessibility and convenient location will satisfy guests’ impulsive cravings for quick-service any time, including options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.”

The $1.5 million concept will host its Grand Opening celebration on Friday, May 23 through Monday, May 26 with a “Borgata Golden Chip” promotion. 500 prizes—including free cupcakes, scoops of gelato, Bonus Comp Dollars, and the grand prize of $1,000 Slot dollars—will be won by guests who purchase boxes of French Macaroons during Memorial Day Weekend, the release said.
