New in Lubbock: June 2018
Lubbock is no stranger to development, and each month the city continues to grow and flourish. From shops to parks to restaurants, we’ve got the scoop on what’s new and noteworthy in Lubbock!
QUEEN OF TARTS BAKERY
8004 Indiana Ave
Got a sweet tooth? Lubbock’s newest bakery and cheese shop is one that you will want to revisit time and time again. The bakery will be an extension of the King Street Pub located on 82nd Street & Indiana. From pecan rolls to coconut cake, Queen of Tarts seems to have it all. Oh, and don’t forget about the cheese! This bakery is fashioned so that Sally Good’s love of cheese can be shared by both locals and visitors. The sweets and cheese provide a variety of tastes all in one place! This unique twist on a traditional “sweets only” bakery can provide any palate with a flavor they desire.
THE WINE NEST

With live music on Thursdays and new things coming soon, the Wine Nest is the perfect destination.
THE TEA ROOM: HEART AND SOUL CUISINE
KK’s Corner Mall
Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
In August 2017, Jessica Murray opened up her “heart and soul” to the Lubbock public inside KK’s Corner Mall. Serving lunch crowds, this tea room can accommodate anyone searching for a bite to eat from 11 a.m – 2:30 p.m. These full plates are piled high with an array of house-made tastes ranging from the chicken salad and pimento or the vegan tomato basil bisque accompanied by a fresh loaf of bread. After your meal, stay a while and indulge in a fresh pie or cake from local bakers or shop wares from local vendors.
