Just got word from Michelle DeMicco, owner of Mikey's Cafe & Bakery. Looks like the grand opening will be postponed to Wednesday, May 30.

"Our new shop "Grand Opening" is set for Saturday, May 26....Thank you all for the continued support and bearing through the past few weeks so patiently...We can't wait to be open," Michelle DeMicco, owner of , wrote on the business' Facebook page.

The bakery was previously located in the old Pickford's Sundries building at 2606 W. Hillsborough Ave.

DeMicco, who grew up in Seminole Heights and currently lives in the neighborhood with her three children, said that overtime she realized that the 3,200 square foot Pickford's building was more space than she wanted, hence the move to the 1,000 square foot space at 6114 N. Central Ave.

The 1926 storefront on Central Avenue also houses and .

Despite the downsizing, DeMicco said Mikey's will continue in the same format - a cafe that serves gourmet sandwiches, soups and salads — and features hand-pulled sodas from the fountain with dozens of flavor syrups to choose from — plus a dessert bakery that accommodates custom orders. DeMicco said everything from the cafe and bakery menus, including fountain sodas, will be offered at the new location.

The historic ambiance afforded by Pickford's, a former drugstore and diner that served as a neighborhood landmark from 1950 to 1998, is something DeMicco plans to continue in the 1926 building on Central Avenue. There'll be seating for 20 inside, along with another 16 to 20 outside.

Mikey's will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
