Popular Atlanta eatery Alon’s Bakery & Market is expanding with a Buckhead location.
The restaurant is slated to open in late summer 2020 between Agency Socialtheque and Nordstrom in the former Twist space at Phipps Plaza, Tomorrow's News Today first reported.
Alon’s also has locations in Morningside and Dunwoody.
The new location will feature offerings similar to the other two locations, including breads, pastries, sandwiches, coffee and grab-and-go items. In addition to the in-store offerings, Alon’s also has a robust catering component.
The 5,000 square-foot space will feature an outdoor patio, and a bar might be added.
Owner Alon Bashon opened the first Alon's in Morningside in 1992. Prior to that, he worked for three years at nearby Murphy's Restaurant (in its original location) as its pastry chef.
Alon's will join several other additions at Phipps Plaza, which is undergoing a $300 million remake. In addition to a Nobu hotel and restaurant, plans call for a 13-story office tower, Life Time fitness center, Pinstripes bowling alley, more restaurants and a grassed area for gatherings.
The AJC has reached out to Alon’s for more details on the new location.
