Mediterranean bakery to open up shop in Citrus Heights

Yalla Yalla Bakery & Mediterranean Spread plans to open this November in Citrus Heights at 7800 Sunrise Blvd. // CH Sentinel

Sentinel staff report–
A new family owned Mediterranean bakery plans to open its doors this November in Citrus Heights, offering hummus, falafel, gyros, fresh stone bread, and a variety of sweets and pastries.

Located at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Antelope Road, restaurant spokesman Alan Ll said the new Yalla Yalla Bakery & Mediterranean Spread restaurant will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will specialize in hot, 16-inch stone bread. He said the restaurant will primarily be operated by his daughter, Rolanda Liddawi, who came up with the name, “Yalla Yalla,” which in Arabic he said means “come on, come on, hurry up.”

The location at 7800 Sunrise Blvd., suite 11, was most recently home to Hamre’s Giant Orange, a burger joint that opened earlier this year but soon closed its doors in September due to the owner needing to “focus on her health,” according to a Facebook post from the restaurant. Prior to Hamre’s opening up shop, the spot was home to Bubbie’s Love Deli, a kosher-style restaurant that closed its doors in late 2017, with the owner citing the reason for closure being “increasing rents, taxes, minimum wages, and the market will not support increasing our pricing.”

The roughly 1200-square-foot building is currently undergoing a complete remodel inside, with nearly everything new except for some commercial hood vents in the kitchen that were able to be salvaged. The family hopes to open the new restaurant during the first half of November, with plans to expand to other locations through franchising.

Restaurant hours are anticipated to be 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Additional information and a full menu is viewable online at YallaBakery.com
