Vicente Bistro

About us

Equal parts café and workshop, Vicente's open production kitchen highlights the collaborative process of creating from scratch. Customers see how we make our products: with the utmost respect for the scientific method and doses of artistry, imagination, and tradition.

The items we're most proud of sound and look foreign but feature comforting flavors and textures that Charlotteans already know and love. Our name is short for Vicente Lopez, a street in Buenos Aires' Recoleta neighborhood. Here, we first dreamt of opening a bakery featuring our North American and Venezuelan roots with the cosmopolitan flair of Buenos Aires. Years later, Vicente is our bid to thoughtfully offer guests tastes of places near and far, familiar and unknown - and celebrate what makes us unique and brings us together.
