Allure Bakery Now Open In Williamsburg Premium Outlets

JAMES CITY- In early August, June Yuiska took her home-based bakery business to a kiosk at Williamsburg Premium Outlets.

Allure Bakery, located in front of the Sunglass Hut in the shopping complex, specializes in European pastries, crepes, teas, coffees, and treats.

Yuiski, who has been baking all her life, made her first pie as a 2-year-old with her grandmother operating the oven. One of 16 kids growing up near Pittsburgh, PA, she learned to pitch in and help cook at a young age.

“Those were amazing memories, times I will never forget,” Yuiska said. “For me, it’s about the moment and making memories, and that is a big part of what Allure Bakery is all about. Everyone has to eat, so why shouldn’t it be memorable.”

Yuiska started Allure Bakery in 2017 at home and has won awards for her baked goods. She decided to operate a kiosk at Williamsburg Premium Outlets based on her experience participating in the 2nd Sundays Art & Music Festival.

Yuiska wants her customers to experience creative, inventive desserts that may have been inspired by her grandmothers’ recipes. Her menu includes scones, pastries, cinnabuns, croissants, brownies, Italian wedding cookies, cakes, and more. 

“The next step is I want to have a European style café in a brick-and-mortar establishment, where you can sit, eat, and experience memorable and fun food,” said Yuiska.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
