Have you noticed the recent changes at Belvedere Square? Atwater’s has moved and expanded its coffee bar operations to the section where fresh bread had previously been sold. A beautiful countertop, made with repurposed wood from a former Fells Point warehouse, accommodates seating for 16 and baristas now offer pour-over brews. There’s also a new dairy bar, featuring different kinds of yogurts and toppings (olive oil, toasted sesame seeds, grilled fruits), cheese plates as well as malted milkshakes and locally made ice creams. And keep on the lookout for a new venture from Woodberry Kitchen’s Spike Gjerde: rumor has it he’s opening an oyster bar where Atwater’s bakery used to be. Look for additional changes—including expansions of Neopol smokery and Ikan Seafood & Sushi, as well as a new gourmet hot dog stand from the folks at Grand Cru—in early 2013. 410-323-2396,
