An acclaimed Winchester bakery will soon have an outpost in Arlington. Mamadou’s Artisan Bakery, which previously had a stall at Boston Public Market as well, plans to open a location at 677 Massachusetts Ave., near Water Street, according to Boston Restaurant Talk, where it will sell its familiar lineup of French breads, sweet loaves, and more.
Mamadou and Mame Mbaye own and operate the bakery at 63 Swanton St. in Winchester, and their new location will be in the former Tula design store space. Most of the baking will continue to be done at the Winchester location, although crepes and waffles will be made onsite in Arlington. The pair aims to open the new storefront in June, per town filings, and it will operate from 8 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
The proposed bread offerings for the Arlington Mamadou’s include loaves of raisin pecan, cheese, sesame, fennel, and olives, along with ciabatta, baguettes, babka, sourdough, whole wheat, and French loaves. The pastry list includes croissants, danishes, Belgian waffles, crepes, and cookies, and there will be coffee, tea, and other beverages available as well.
The Winchester location of Mamadou’s opened nearly a decade ago. Previously, Mamadou spent a decade baking at Whole Foods after emigrating from Senegal, where he originally learned French-style bread baking. He has maintained a connection with Whole Foods; the Mbayes do some wholesale business with the company.
