Longtime Atlanta business Alon’s Bakery & Market debuted its long-awaited third metro Atlanta location today.

The opening was announced on Alon’s Instagram account:

The market first announced plans for its Phipps location at 3500 Peachtree Road nearly three years ago.

The new location offers breads, pastries, sandwiches, coffee and grab-and-go items.

The 5,000 square-foot space will feature an outdoor patio.

Owner Alon Balshan 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.

The opening of Alon’s is one of several additions planned for Phipps Plaza.

Announced earlier this year, the 24,000-square-foot “Citizens” food hall will be a collaboration with C3, a food and beverage platform that has brands including Umami Burger, Krispy Rice and Sam’s Crispy Chicken, according to Simon, the company that owns Phipps.

A co-working space, a 13-story office tower and a Nobu Hotel and Restaurant are all expected to open at Phipps in the coming months.

The Phipps Alon’s hours are 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Sundays.

Balshan did not immediately respond to a request for more information on the Phipps location of Alon’s.
