The second location of Sandy Springs-based Breadwinner Cafe and Bakery opens Friday, July 31, in the former Wright Gourmet Sandwich Shoppe in Dunwoody Village for soup, salads, sandwiches, and grab-and-go food. In addition to limited dine-in service, Breadwinner includes online ordering for takeout and delivery via UberEats and GrubHub.

Breadwinner Cafe is owned by Geoff and Katie Melkonian, who own Farm to Ladle restaurants at Ponce City Market and Avalon in Alpharetta. The Melkonians announced they were taking over the Wright Gourmet space last spring, following the closure of the much-loved sandwich shop after 35 years there.

“We’ve wanted to be in Dunwoody for a long time, and this was the right location,” Geoff Melkonian says in the press release. “It’s in the center of town, and the community has been incredibly supportive. The Wright’s Gourmet was a coveted family favorite for so long, and we feel honored to be opening our second shop in such a beloved space.”

Following a complete renovation of the interior earlier this year, Breadwinner now seats up to 75 people between the dining room and enclosed patio. However, capacity is currently limited to 35 people until the health crisis ends.

As for the menu, expect freshly made soups, salads, and sandwiches, such as an Italian sub, pesto panini, and pimento cheese, boxed lunches, and weekly off-menu sandwich platter specials, like beef tenderloin with grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes. Breadwinner also offers catering services and an in-store marketplace selling baked goods and breads, dressings, dips and spreads, and prepared meals.

Open Monday - Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
