Za'atar Is Opening in Former Loukoumaki Bakery Space in Arlington
A Middle Eastern and Armenian bakery is coming to Arlington, moving into the space where a Greek bakery had been.
The Arlington Patch is reporting that Za'atar plans to open on Mass. Ave. at the Highland Avenue intersection, taking over the former Loukoumaki Bakery site. The article says that the bakery is looking to be open Monday through Saturday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, with items such as lahmajun, tahini bread, baklava, rice pudding, ghadayef, croissants, cookies, iced coffee, lemonade, and more offered. It is not yet known when Za'atar might open.
[August 8 update: An article in the Arlington Advocate indicates that Za'atar plans to open in sometime during the middle of this month.]
[September 8 update: A check on the place over the weekend indicates that Za'atar is now open.]
The address for this new Middle Eastern and Armenian bakery in Arlington is: Za'atar, 916 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02474.
