I was in the area on Friday night and noticed that this spot has now opened. Talking to one of the staff there sounds like it has only been a few days and they are doing more of a "soft" opening with advertising/etc to come. For example they don't have their "hours" signage up,etc (7am to 9pm Monday to Saturday according to the website):

Not much detail on the website either. I had just eaten dinner but stopped in to take a look around and it is an interesting space. The bakery is only seperated by glass walls so you can see what is going on in the production (think SOMA, but for bread).

Anyway, was offered a sample of the biscotti including a savoury one. Really enjoyed what I had. They were the bakers that supplied the previous Alimento market with product before (cookies, breads, etc) and I was a fan of the stuff I had from there as well.

Noticed they had a couple of prepared sandwiches on the counter too. Not sure what else they will be rolling out but worth while checking out over the coming weeks/months.

BTW, the space is right below WVRST , just west of King and Portland
