Lovejoy Bakers has already expanded past its namesake Pearl District location, opening a Southeast bakery in May 2012. Now, the Portland Business Journal reports that the spot, owned by Tracy and Mark Frankel, has signed a lease for the South Waterfront's Zidell Yards apartment building to build a "bakery and deli."
It's been somewhat of a bakery boom in Portland of late: Earlier this summer, Roman Candle Bakery debuted, filling pastry cases at all Stumptown locations. Soon thereafter, Little T American Baker announced plans to open a mini-bakery in the West End; just yesterday, ChefStable announced it will soon open a French-style bakery on N. Williams. Updates on Lovejoy on the Waterfront as they become available.
