Just one year shy of celebrating 70 years in business, the Edgewood Bakery is closing its doors for good. There is no chance, either, for a purchase and re-opening under the same name as Stache Investments has sold the property to local restaurant entrepreneur John Valentino.

Valentino, who owns Mellow Mushroom and Burrito Gallery, has plans to convert the bakery to a second French Pantry. He owns the original on Philips Highway, having purchased it in 2015.

A statement by Stache Investments noted the bakery business is shifting from standalone bakeries, with purchases being made at grocery stores, convenience stores and coffee shops. Valentino believes that putting a French Pantry at that location will give fans of Edgewood Bakery and residents of Murray Hill a “unique and extraordinary experience.”

Edgewood Bakery will close its doors for the second and last time on Saturday, March 12. All custom cake orders will be filled through March 31.
