New Owner Taking Over Arlington Bakery in East Arlington

A longtime suburban bakery that focuses on Greek treats has shut down, as it gets ready for an ownership change.

According to a source, Arlington Bakery in East Arlington is closed, with a check on the Mass. Ave. space showing signs up that say "Arlington Bakery is under new ownership! On June 30, 2019, we will be closing our doors. Renovations will be made in July with an opening date to be determined." The note also mentions that the current owners will help the new owner with the transition, though it is not yet known what changes (if any) will come to the space.

Arlington Bakery has been known in part for such items as baklava, sheet cake, cookies, spanakopita, and Easter bread.

The address for this now-closed Greek bakery in East Arlington is: Arlington Bakery, 187 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02474.

[July 1 update: Your Arlington mentions that new owner Evangelia Velentzas plans to keep the name and menu the same for the Arlington Bakery at least for now, saying that "It's my first bakery, and I want to see how it does and get more comfortable before I make any incremental changes." (More information can be found in the reference material on the site.)]

[October 4 update: The Arlington Advocate states that Arlington Bakery is open once again after going through renovations, and with it, some additions to the offerings, including mini-cakes and (eventually) a bread menu.]
