A branch of Athan's European Bakery Cafe has opened in Brighton Center and near Daniel's Bakery. It looks like a nice upscale addition to the neighborhood. The pastries look great and I'm assuming that they are prepared at the Brookline site (no. I got a terrific almond croissant ($2.25) on saturday night and noticed that they are open late and serve dinner entrees with a few tables at the back. The manager showed me the menu and they salads ($10-15 Has anyone tried it? ). All in all, I'm very hopeful.
