B-TOWN BIZ: Grand Central Bakery To Open In Burien This Summer
Grand Central Bakery, a longtime bakery in Seattle and Portland, is building its newest location in downtown Burien, at 626 SW 152nd Street, in the building formerly occupied by Restaurante CentroAmericano.
Employees from the bakery were on hand at the finish line of last Sunday’s Cove to Clover 5k race, passing out Oatmeal Stout Cake and bread with jam. Rumor has it that some runners even ended up “hitting each other with baguettes.”
It’s nice to see an established bakery come to Burien, and on a personal note, we have many fond memories of eating at their original location in the Grand Central Building in Occidental Square in downtown Seattle.
Here’s a pic of their Burien space taken Tuesday (Mar. 16), currently under construction but moving towards a summer opening:
Here’s a blurb from their website:
COMING SUMMER 2010!
Freshly baked artisan breads, hand-made pastries and delicious sandwiches will soon be available in charming downtown Burien.
Soon we’ll pick up our hammers and get to work building a cafÃ© that is as warm and inviting as the food we serve.
We can’t wait to meet you!
