Freshness is the order of the day at Richter Bakhaus


BOERNE — Fresh bread, pastries and more tempt taste buds at Richter Bakhaus, a new concept from Guy and Joi Sanders in The Shops at 153 Main.

“The great thing about coming to the bakery is its counter service. It’s a little bit different than everyone else in town,” Guy Sanders said.

The married couple own the entire shopping complex including Richter Cork and Keg, a wine and beer bar, and Richter Tavern, an upcoming eatery.

Richter Bakhaus recently opened at 153 S. Main St. The Sanders created the bakery to work in tandem with their other ventures, supplying the bread.

According to the pair, Boerne is undergoing a renaissance fueled by a wave of incoming Hill Country residents, so they want to help create an environment where folks stay locally.

The Shops at 153 Main was formerly an automotive garage run by Max Richter and his son, Arno. They came from Germany in the late 1800s.

“When we took over the building and started renovating it, we took it all the way back to its 1920 roots and bought the name back,” Sanders said.

Breads, baked daily by Sabrina Delgado, range from sourdough to Italian loaf.

According to chef Bill McGrory IV, pastries include duffins, or doughnut-like muffins; whoopie pies; and Fynn Rolls, the bakery’s take on cinnamon rolls. The latter is named after McGrory’s son.

Breakfast includes bagels and fresh biscuits; lunch diners can try made-to-order paninis.

Hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.

  1. Please bring back the egg sandwiches. Can you include more meat options than chorizo? Also, can you add English muffin egg sandwiches besides bagels?
    Thank you!
