Good new businesses are always welcome in Wedgwood’s commercial district along 35th Avenue NE. A Seattle company, the Grand Central Bakery, announced that they will open a Wedgwood cafe at 7501 35th Ave NE, in the former View Ridge Pharmacy space at the northwest corner of NE 75th Street.
Building renovations began in the second week of May 2018. Grand Central Bakery was ready to open the Wedgwood cafe on October 16, 2018, to bring Grand Central’s freshly baked artisan breads, pastries, sandwiches and more to residents of northeast Seattle.
Wedgwood is Grand Central’s fourth Seattle location, joining Eastlake, Burien, and the original Pioneer Square location on First Avenue South.
With a larger wholesale bread production space and commissary kitchen on South Nevada Street, Grand Central now has extra production capacity to open new cafes in the Seattle area. In May 2019 another branch opened at 1607 N. 45th Street in Wallingford (corner of Woodlawn Avenue, just north of Lincoln High School.)
What to expect at Grand Central Bakery in Wedgwood:
- A bright, beautiful space with clean lines, white tile and natural wood where customers can enjoy delicious food and a sense of community.
- Grand Central’s full line of artisan breads, plus sandwiches, salads and pastries baked fresh daily made with the best local & sustainable ingredients.
- A dedicated parking lot at the north end of the building. Grand Central Bakery shares the parking lot with the other businesses in the building: the Seattle Coin Shop and the Wedgwood Barber Shop.
