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.

The new shop, housed at 445 Revolution Drive, will be Mike’s third location. Its second debuted in Harvard Square in 2014.

Mike’s teased the opening with a cryptic social media post on Monday.

Coming soon…. very soon. #newlocation #assemblyrow #mikespastry #thursday

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.
