The 132-year-old Cosby Hotel was set to be demolished. But redevelopers took over and have spent the last couple of years reviving the building at Ninth and Baltimore.

Two food operations — Milwaukee Delicatessen Co. and Sasha’s Bakery — are opening Thursday.

A ribbon cutting was scheduled for Thursday morning.

•  Jeremy and Michelle Schepmann are the owners of Sasha's Baking Co. at 105 W. Ninth St.

Sasha’s will sell such items as European-style breads, croissants, sandwiches, pastries, cinnamon rolls, strata, quiche and cookies. It also will serve bottled beers, wines and spirits, in a side dining area.

It will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

•  Milwaukee Delicatessen Co., in the corner space at 101 W. Ninth St., will serve a variety of deli sandwiches, entree salads and Pizza 51 pizzas produced on-site. Owners are Jon Gerner, Jason Pryor, owner of Pizza 51 and Pizza 51 West, Pryor’s wife, Shannon Pryor, and two minority partners.

It will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
