Highland Bakery fans take note. You will soon be able to get your fix at a third location in the Atlanta Financial Center on Peachtree Road NE. It is currently scheduled to open in early February.
The newest Highland Bakery will have a similar menu to sister restaurants but will have a strong coffee and smoothie presence, attempting to fill the void created by the departure of Starbucks from this location.
Though sugar artist Karen Portaleo will remain at the original Highland Bakery location, custom cakes can still be ordered. Consultations can take place via email.
As for parking, there are a few spaces outside the storefront and availability in the parking deck. Highland is considering offering weekend parking validation for the deck.
7 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays. 3343 Peachtree Street, Atlanta. No phone available yet, $.
