Forge Baking Company Is Opening in Somerville

A brand new cafe and "bakehouse" is on its way to Somerville, and the folks behind it also run a couple of other cafes in the city.

According to its website, Forge Baking Company is going to be opening on Somerville Avenue, moving into the shopping center where Family Dollar and a few other businesses are located. The site mentions that the place will be "the youngest sibling of Diesel Cafe in Davis Square and Bloc 11 Cafe in Union Square," with the plans being for a full-service cafe and bakery that has seating for approximately 50. (A few items mentioned as being offered include sandwiches, macaroons, bread, and espresso.)

Based on a Twitter post from Forge Baking Company, it appears that the address for the spot is 626 Somerville Avenue.

[November 5 update: According to Leah from Leah's Life along with a few other sources, it looks like Forge Baking Company will soft-open today.]

[December 8 update: Eater Boston mentions that Forge Baking Company now has its full menu in place and starts its full-time hours (7:00 AM to 7:00 PM daily) starting today.]
