from a friend...

Sad news. Just heard the French Bakery has shut down for good and they are moving back to San Ignacio.

Agreed, it will be missed. But, according to seashell on another thread, we shouldn't be eating there anyway. smirk

Sadly it was more supported in words than in purchases. But some of us will very greatly miss it.

do get something like that off the ground, its going to take a LONG LONG time to get on peoples 'radars'. We are all such creatures of habit....i wish they'd held on a little longer so that we could have made it that "habit".

master lee's bread in his bread/massage/ice cream shop on front street isnt bad at all...

just not the same as the bakery and their lovely sandwiches.

They held on as long as funds would permit. If say 20 more people had bought their daily bread there it might have made a difference. San Ignacio provides more stable year-round business for them, and of course the cost of living and operating there is much lower. I know they found rent to be a real killer.
