Woodward Avenue between Campus Martius and Grand Circus Park is shaping up with a variety of food and retail options, and one of them is the new Avalon Bakery location that’s scheduled to open later this year.

The cafe at State and Woodward was originally announced back in 2015 for the summer of 2016, but as projects often do, it’s taken awhile longer for the dough to rise on this one.

The project open is now slated for spring of this year, and they’ve starting taking job applications at 1001 Woodward down the street.

On Friday awnings and were being installed, adding a touch that’s a good sign opening is on the horizon. The plan on this location is to offer food options all day, including breakfast, lunch and dinner and have sidewalk seating in warmer weather.

Avalon recently won an award from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) for one of the best vegan desserts in America for their carrot cake, and is known for their community involvement hiring Detroiters for their operations and building a bakery facility on the east side of the city.

The downtown Detroit Avalon location is at 1049 Woodward Avenue.
