Quack’s bakery opening a location in South Austin

South Austin will soon get a taste of the pies, pastries and other baked goods that have made Quack’s such a hit in Hyde Park. The bakery founded by Art Silver will open at 5326 Manchaca Road in the old Strange Brew space, which closed in January following financial difficulties. Captain Quackenbush’s first opened in 1983 on The Drag, and bills itself as “Austin’s first coffeshop.”

It also looks like Quack’s has some live music plans in store for the spot that was a popular spot for singer-songwriters for several years.
