You may not have to lament much longer. I passed Brewbaker's today, wishing I could buy one of their nice homemade salads for lunch.
BIG signs up in every window: "GRAND REOPENING SOON" and mentions all the old favorite coffee, sandwich and muffin names.
Legal letters posted everywhere, that the sole stockholder of "Brewbaker Inc." is in posession of the premises and no one else is to be admitted.
You may have missed it, but the personnel and menu was drastically altered in the last month of it's old life, just before the newspapers went up on the windows. From what I saw, my guess is that the original owner contracted out an immigrant family to run place while retaining ownership & some income, and mayhem ensued. Maybe there will be a happy ending yet...
