New Vegan + Gluten- Free Bakery Officially Open in Montclair

Vanessa Vanacore

A popular Westfield, NJ bakery has recently announced that it will be moving into a new location in Montclair. Lexi’s Kitchen opened a year ago at 401 West Broad Street and has since been forced to move locations. Keep reading to find out what this means for the gluten free and vegan bakery.
Front Door at Old Location

Lexi Borr launched the business back in 2019 from her mom’s kitchen. Since then, she rented out a commercial kitchen space and started selling her baked goods at the Westfield Farmer’s Market.

In early 2020, Lexi moved Lexi’s Kitchen into the storefront in Westfield where it has been operating for the past year and a half. However, unexpectedly, Borr was told by the person she was leasing from that she must vacate by October 1st.

Having much success in Westfield, Lexi is bummed out on having to move locations. However, being that Montclair is one of Lexi’s favorite towns in New Jersey, it seemed like a no brainer to look at new storefront locations here. Lexi found luck at 324 Orange Road. She says she immediately fell in love with the space, and the newly renovated kitchen is a huge plus for the business.

Because this Montclair location now offers more space, Lexi and her business partner Shannon have stated that they plan on expanding their current menu. They’re excited to now offer coffee, and more savory items like salads and various lunch foods.
Various Baked Goods from Lexi's

Lexi's Kitchen is most known for their seasonally inspired baked goods that are organic, gluten free, and vegan. Being that Lexi has a background in food and nutrition, serving super high quality ingredients is high on her priority list.

This summer the bakery offered gorgeously decorated ice cream bars, lemon cake, a summer bruschetta, and citrus loaf. Their offerings are constantly changing and the fall lineup seems to be taking off already. Customers can expect pumpkin and banana bread loafs, coffee cake, brownies, muffins, cakes and cookies.

The bakery currently offers some savory options as well like corn bread, and crackers in addition to some new lunch ideas they haven't currently added to their website menu.

As of today, Lexi's Kitchen is open and ready to meet their new Montclair customer base. Hours are listed as 10am-4pm Wednesdays through Saturday and 9am to 1pm on Sunday. Lexi has stated she might change her week day hours to be open earlier. The bakery will be closed Monday and Tuesday.
