Jonathan St. Hilaire, owner of Midtown’s Bakeshop, announced this morning on Bakeshop’s Facebook page that the bakery will close early next year. It will be replaced by another restaurant which, according to What Now Atlanta, will be Lime Fresh Mexican Grill.
Hilaire conceded in his post that Bakeshop has been struggling with current space constraints to manage its growing wholesale business. He also said, “I can’t release any details on the two things I’m working on now, but hope to by the end of the year. I can promise that you’ll be able to find Bakeshop breads and pastries in Atlanta.”
Bakeshop will be open through the holiday season to fill holiday baking needs.
