Art of Bread's first customer out the door on opening morning, June 8, 2011
pastries at Art of Bread on opening morning.The Art of Bread’s first customer out the door was Mike Ferguson (above) of Ardmore, who got a croissant and medium coffee. One of a slow trickle of customers in the first half hour after the 7 a.m. opening, he said he’d been drawn to the place because he was a big fan of Georges Perrier. At opening hour on its first morning, the Perrier bakery/cafe had a modest spread of croissants, breads and pastries. General Art of Bread is located on a commercial section of Montgomery Avenue on the edge of Narberth.manager and Perrier partner Joel-Pierre Perez was erecting umbrellas over the three sidewalk tables out front, and a work crew was replacing an awning that wasn’t quite right. Indoors, the cafe has six high tables with two stools each, and three two-seat tables are tucked onto the sidewalk. Perrier was expected to arrive later in the morning.
