This is the kind of confidence that you’ll only find in cats. Two Fat Cats, the popular India Street bakery in Portland, is opening a second location in South Portland, in a spot where another bakery closed after about a year in business.

Stacy Begin, owner of Two Fat Cats, confirmed this past weekend that she has just signed a lease at 740 Broadway, the former home of Fernleaf Bakery’s second location. (Fernleaf’s original bakery and coffee shop is in Saco.) Begin hopes to open at the new location in April.

The storefront on Broadway is sandwiched between Tuxedos on Broadway and a Supercuts. There’s a drive-thru for the Tropical Smoothie Cafe in the same development, should you want a Bahama Mama smoothie to go with your Two Fat Cats whoopie pie.

The plusses? Plenty of parking and access to the bakery’s great blueberry pies without having to cross the Casco Bay Bridge.
