Highland Bakery has released more details about its plans to open a shop in Decatur.

The Decatur Highland Bakery will be located at 315 West Ponce de Leon Avenue. The company has announced it will open “mid-summer” on the first floor of the building. The store will be open seven days a week.

“Their sixth location will boast 3000 square feet of main level seating as well as a 500 square foot mezzanine,” a press release from the company says. “A full breakfast and lunch menu will be served, including signature dishes such as Fried Chicken Benedict, Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes, Peanut Butter French Toast as well as gourmet coffee. The new space will also include a full service bakery offering the whole grain, all-natural, freshly baked breads and delectable pastries that have made Highland Bakery a local favorite. Catering and custom cakes are also available.”

The first Highland Bakery opened in 2003. There are locations in Old Fourth Ward, Buckhead, Midtown, Emory and Georgia Tech. The company also wants to open an unspecified “new concept” in Virginia Highlands and add more coffee kiosks and cafes.

“We are honored to bring Highland Bakery to the vibrant and diverse community of Decatur and are thrilled to be part of the next phase of development in this growing community,” Highland Bakery founder Stacey Eames said in a press release. “I have called Decatur home for the past few years and look forward to serving my neighbors!”

The store will be part of the larger 315 West Ponce project being developed by Redstone Investments.

Other businesses, including Orangetheory Fitness and Taziki’s restaurant, are also planning to move into the location.
