Mayflour on the move on Cape Ann from Whistlestop #RockportMA to #EssexMA…

After five years on the block of Whistlestop mall in Rockport, Mayflour (and its bakery/coffee shop formerly known as Blume) is temporarily closed. Mayflour is reopening in 162 Main Street, Essex come Spring 2023, just perfect timing for new beginnings. How will they build out and design their new space?

Signs of the times: Blume coffee and bakery clever design tweaks for customer and staff safety during Covid-19 #RockportMA

Rockport, Mass.

Clever reopening design at Blume. Customers step up to a custom order booth tucked into the door frame; the pick up window was moved to the right. Bakery goods are displayed in the windows. The signature pink floor shines through.
