    A historic building in Coolidge Corner will have a new tenant later this year: Allium Market will open within the S.S. Pierce Building on the corner of Harvard and Beacon Streets, bringing cafe fare, cheese, and specialty foods to the neighborhood.

    The cafe is the work of Talia Glass, who is modeling the concept with Michigan’s famous Zingerman’s Delicatessen in mind. There will be three components to Allium: the market section, a cheese shop, and the cafe, which will serve George Howell Coffee.

    Customers will order at a counter from a menu that includes light dishes with bread sourced from Clear Flour near Packard’s Corner. Expect to see items like goat cheese toast, bread topped with mixed chickpea salad, and even scallion cream cheese and salmon toast, along with salads, spreads and dips, and made-to-order cheese boards that tap into the cheese section of Allium. Additionally, Tania Peterson will serve as Allium’s in-house pastry chef, bringing to the market and cafe years of experience at restaurants and catering companies around Boston.

    “The emphasis is really just creating awesome food each day,” Glass said. “In an ideal world we’d like to be running out of things at the end of the day.”

    The market component will reflect the tastes of Glass and her team.

    “We’re gonna carry a pretty broad selection of imported and domestic dry goods, pantry staples, and foods that are sourced by our team,” Glass told Eater. Those items will include olive oils, vinegars, pickled vegetables, sauces, and more.

    “It’s the stuff that myself and our team love, have tried, and gotten to know,” she said, and there will be an emphasis on sampling. “Every single thing in the store, the second you walk in the doors, you have the ability to try everything. Our overall focus in kind of all elements is to just create a really great experience for our customers.”
