Goodbye to "Jon Vie", Hello to ?

Jon | Dec 31, 2004 11:42 PM

I stopped by the "Jon Vie" Bakery today hoping to have a last cup of coffee and piece of pastry but alas I was too late, the doors were closed and the shelves empty, a sad sight for me. Someone had a video camera and was interviewing the remaining owner (there were two partners originally, one named John the other Vito, hence the clever french-sounding name). The owner was remarkably slim for someone who owned a bakery! I wanted to get his secret but there was a small crowd of regulars who had stopped by to say their farewells so I just went on my way wondering what will replace it? It would be nice of one of the smaller bakeries in town decided to size-up, like "Ceci Cela" for example. Oh well, we'll just have to wait and see.
