I was looking up something different on Anna's Cool Finds and found this notice about the closure.
Ok, it was never the best place in the world, but there was a time I'd drive from SF just for the princess cake. Anyone know what happened?
Anna had done a review just the day before and it seems got the last pieces of princess cake. Despite a disappointing meal, she said of the cake
"I have always had a soft spot for their princess cake, and I got the last slice left in their case. It did not disappoint. If you want a beautiful view and a luscious pastry, and not have concern for the time, this is a lovely place to visit."
I can't think of a better person to get that last slice of cake.Though she didn't realize it at the time, nice last words about the place. That's what I liked about it.
