Caitlin Schumacher’s Girl Nextdough breakfast food truck officially hit the road Sept. 11, when the former FIG executive pastry chef served a long line of local supporters like Effin b Radio host Lindsay Collins and Stems & Skins executive chef Julian Lippe, among others.

Moving forward, the Girl Nextdough food truck will set up shop in front of the Pour House Thursday-Friday from 7 a.m.-12 p.m. and at 1230 Camp Road on James Island Saturday-Sunday from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. 

Schumacher specializes in sourdough bagels and other sweet treats, and she’s doing it in the truck made famous by Melanie Durant’s Scram, which served breakfast buns and other sweets at 1291 Folly Road from 2017-2019 before the renowned pastry chef (who preceded Schumacher at FIG) relocated to New Jersey. “It’s all come full circle in a way,” Schumacher told the City Paper July 28

Collins posted a picture of a smoked salmon bagel, and Lippe said he ordered an “everything” bagel with hot pepper jelly cream cheese, bacon and soft scrambled eggs, a benne seed bagel with sausage, fried egg and cheddar, a sour cherry danish and Nutella brioche. 

“Caitlin’s attention to detail for her menu items, from the perfectly seasoned, chewy bagel to the best jammy Storey Farms egg is what sets her apart,” Lippe told the City Paper.
