The Return of Ali Hijazi

 

continued

Hijazi plans to open half a dozen Cafe Zamaans in the Ann Arbor area over the next few years, and the bakery on Packard is the linchpin of his plan. "We will be baking our bread over there fresh for all the locations," he says. He says fresh baked bread is an important part of the Cafe Zamaan menu, which features a wide selection of wrapped sandwiches, and being able to bake the bread at a single location means he'll need less square footage in the others, saving in rent.

Because the Packard location is dominated by the bakery, it seats only about a dozen people. Hijazi likens it to a sandwich shop--a place to duck in for a quick pita wrap as opposed to a sit-down dinner, which is what he will emphasize in the larger Cafe Zamaan.
