When discussing the origins of his bakery with reporters from the Houston Press, owner Andrew "Drew" Rogers explained, "When I turned 40, my wife turned to me and said, 'If money were no object, what would you really want to do?'" Andrew told her he wanted to be a pastry chef, recalling the familiar smells of baking from growing up in an Italian household. After working in various bakeries and kitchens throughout Houston, he finally opened up his own New York–style bakery, Drew's Pastry Place.
Colorful displays of cookies, cakes, and housemade cannolis lauded by MyFoxHouston greet customers entering the bakery, where Andrew and his kitchen crew whip up baked goods and fresh bread from scratch. In the seating area, customers curl up in a cushy armchair by the bookshelf and bite into crunchy pizza. Soft lanterns hang from the bakery's ceiling, illuminating Italian-inspired artwork—from oil paintings of the countryside to marble statues of a puddle of olive oil.
