Free sample alert: Westville Bakery softly opens today on 9th Street

Updated 10/29 — the bakery is now open...

Westville Bakery debuts today — 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. — at 433 E. Ninth St. between First Avenue and Avenue A, EVG contributor Steven reports. (These photos are from Friday.)

They'll be expanding on what you can find at the various Westville locations, including on Avenue A and 11th Street. Eater had more details last month on what to expect:

Westville’s longtime pastry chef Meital Cohen will be in charge of the food, focusing on sweets such as carrot cake, apple and blueberry pies, assorted cookies, and seasonal specials like a dragon fruit smoothie bowl with berries, almond butter, and granola. But there will also be a savory menu featuring sandwiches, tartines, quiches, and salads. Specific tartines include ones with smoked trout, crème fraîche, and chives or marinated fennel and chickpea salad with whipped feta, while quiches may have roasted vegetables and herb goat cheese or grilled onions and mixed mushrooms. Expect vegan and gluten-free options too.

This space was Zucker Bakery for the past seven years. Zucker's owner decided to retire from the business on July 1.
