The long-awaited Inspirada outpost of Gäbi Boutique Donut & Pastry will open its doors the first week of July. The new doughnut and coffee shop at 2340 Via Inspirada will offer the same menu as its other Henderson location, with artfully designed treats filled with scratch-made cream fillings and fruit competes. The menu offers photo-ready Korean-style milk creams — yeasted doughnuts cut in half and filled with sweet mascarpone cream and chocolate or strawberry compote. Croffles are prepared with croissant dough rolled in raw sugar and cooked in a waffle maker, so the outside caramelizes. And the doughnut sandwiches are savory, filled with eggs, bacon, and sausage with panko breading, arugula, and sauce.
The new Gäbi has a covered patio with room for 15 or 20 tables. Inside, the cafe has risers, like those found at Gäbi Coffee (5808 Spring Mountain Rd #104) in Chinatown, that encourage customers to slip off their shoes and sit cross-legged at floor cushions and low tables. While it had previously expected to open in April, it will soft open the first week of July, with exact dates and times to be announced soon.
