The scent of freshly baked cookies and granola emanates from the new, bright yellow bakery on Chapel Street.
New Haven resident Robin Schaffer ’79 opened Four Flours — the company’s first storefront — Dec. 15 on 1203 Chapel St. Almost two months later, the bakery’s grand opening will take place today at 11 a.m. with a guest appearance from Mayor Toni Harp. Before opening a brick-and-mortar location, Schaffer established Four Flours as a wholesale retail business to markets like Rica’s and Elm City 15 years ago, she said. Four Flours offers an all-natural assortment of cookies, biscotti, granola, breads, vegan treats, coffee and Chillwiches — ice-cream cookie sandwiches that students may recognize from the food truck that sells them in New Haven
