Bakery, Coffee and Ice Cream Shop Coming to New Melle

By Dianne Sudbrock

Debbie Urzi of New Melle is excited to announce she will be opening New Melle Baking Company in the New Melle Town Square (between Blondin Real Estate and White Wolf Pub and Grill) sometime in May. Debbie has served faithfully in her local church bakery/coffee shop, and has been doing custom baking for several years, but opening her own shop has been a long-time dream. Now that dream is becoming a reality.

The lease has been signed, and Debbie and her husband, Tony, have begun work on transforming the location that previously housed Catala Facial Retreat and Boutique into a bakery, coffee and ice cream shop.

Debbie and Tony have lived in the area for over 20 years and raised their children here. When she announced her plans a few weeks ago on Facebook, she was overwhelmed by the excitement from the community. “Everyone’s been very warm and supportive,” she said. People have also asked about the type of items to be offered. Debbie said, “I’m listening to the community and feel we’ll be able to offer a wide variety of items from the suggestions and ideas that everyone has expressed.”
