NEWS-REVIEW FILE PHOTO | The Blue Duck Bakery had hoped to be open in summer, but now it will finally open its doors, just in time for the holidays.

The Blue Duck Bakery is open for business in downtown Riverhead, just in time for the holidays.

Owner Nancy Kouris told the News-Review her bakery, which also has locations in Southold and Southampton,  will open its doors for a soft opening Monday. She said she hopes to roll out the bakery’s cafe menu by Friday.

A complete grand opening is two to three weeks away.

“We’re still waiting to get a few things done,” she said in an email Sunday. “But our bakery case is full, we have fresh bread and the coffee is all ready.”

The new shop is located on East Main Street, next to Ralph’s Italian Ices.
