Always good to see more new businesses opening at Union Station. T & Y Bakery is coming to the west coast’s busiest rail hub by this spring. The Russian-style bakery with currently two locations — one at Farmers Market at 3rd/Fairfax and another in West Hollywood — is planning to build-out a brand new 258 square foot food stall next to Ben & Jerry’s and across from the Amtrak ticketing counter and exciting brand new Amtrak Metro Lounge. T & Y, which stands for “Tbilisi & Yerevan” (the capital cities of Georgia and Armenia respectively), will bring to Union Station the same yummy selection of pastries (like baklavas) and paninis that they’re known for in their other locations.
T & Y Bakery will join a group of other eateries that have opened in Union Station recently including Japanese convenience store Famima, Starbucks, Wetzel’s Pretzels, See’s Candies, Subway, and Ben & Jerry’s. The best thing about all this is that adding more businesses into the terminal concourse have not only increased the amenities offered to rail passengers but have also helped to activate the station with more hustle bustle activity, which one would expect for the busiest rail station on the west coast.
