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.
