Globe Staff File Photos/Suzanne Kreiter (above), Pat Greenhouse (left)The rumor has been afoot for some time. It's true: A third branch of Joanne Chang's Flour Bakery is opening. No, it's not in Needham. (Where did that rumor come from, anyway?) It's in Cambridge, just outside Central Square. The bakery will share the same building as the new Central Bottle Wine + Provisions, on Mass. Ave. heading toward MIT.
Chang says this Flour will be much like the other two, which are located in the South End and Fort Point. Everything will be baked and cooked in house. The pastry and sandwich menus will be the same, although the daily specials will differ. Chang expects to sign the lease next week, and hopes to open in June.
"The area reminds me so much of pre-2000 South End, plus the energy of businesses at Fort Point," Chang writes in a Twitter message. "Best of both worlds, we hope."
