Sevan Bakery has been bringing a taste of Armenia to the Watertown community for more than 40 years. It all started in 1971, the year the family-owned bakery first began baking fresh breads like Armenian pida, lavash, and simit––a savory, sesame ring filled with cheese or olive paste. Then, in 1984, the family decided their neighbors were ready for more, and so they began preparing generations-old family recipes that, like their beloved baked goods, are made from-scratch each day. Now, when customers drop by for crusty French loaves or savory boregs (turnovers), they can also grab ready-to-eat entrees and side dishes such as kibbeh, lentil pilaf, or stuffed grape leaves. But that's only the beginning––today, Sevan Bakery has grown into a full international food market, offering a unique selection of nuts, cheeses, herbs, oils, wines, and other specialty foods that are rarely found outside a United Nations potluck dinner.
