Somerville’s Assembly Row is about to get a little bit sweeter.
Mike’s Pastry, the iconic North End bakery famous for its cannoli, is opening a location in the burgeoning retail district on Thursday at 8 a.m.
Mike’s teased the opening with a cryptic social media post on Monday.
Mike’s Pastry General Manager Angelo Papa confirmed the opening time and date in an email, saying that the bakery was “very excited” to be expanding to Somerville.
According to a press release, one of Mike’s founding owners, Annette Mercogliano, will serve the first cannoli at 8 a.m., and Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone will be on hand for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:15 a.m.
