« Calexico Launches Brunch on 5th Avenue | Main | Parco Closes After Sudden Passing of Owner Alex Pozzan »

Trois Pommes Patisserie Closing March 23

I first noticed a couple weeks ago that Trois Pommes Patisserie, the 7 year-old bakery on Fifth Avenue between Garfield and Carroll, had been put up for rent for $8,500/month. As expected, the bakery will be closing soon, and its last day will be March 23rd, owner Emily Isaac posted to Facebook. Here's the note:

"Dear Facebook Friends:
I am sad to report that we will be closing this location on 3/23. We will keep you posted on information about our new location. Thank you for a great almost seven years. Please join us at 5pm on the 23rd for a farewell party and bake sale. $10 will get you booze, food and all the baked goods you can grab."

While it hasn't been officially confirmed, rumor has it that the bakery will be moving to a new home in Sunset Park. For many, no stroll down 5th Avenue was complete without a stop into Trois Pommes, and it'll be missed. Make sure to stop in to pay your respects before it's gone for good.

My opinion was that the offering was average, at best. I'm sure the arrival of Le Pain didn't help. I also think the second lease is often too much for many businesses to absorb, especially when the hood gets as fancy as 5th ave is nowadays.

Sunset Park may be more affordable, but I'm not sure the target market is there for $2.50 coffees and +$3 pastries.

Best wishes.

I will miss Emily and her amazing carrot cake, glad to hear that she's not throwing in the towel, completely. I surely will make the trip on occasion to continue to support her business....and my waistline.
Thank YOU Emily for all your goodies over the years, I personally will miss your presence on 5th avenue.

Definitely will be missed, and I absolutely agree: It was hard to walk by there without stopping in for a sugar cookie or some ice cream. Big, big loss, but the neighborhood has changes and there are supposed fancier options I've really never ventured into because I always had a place like Trois Pommes waiting.

Typical of blog readership to not appreciate the truly good in this neighborhood.

This is one of my favorite places to stop in for coffee. I'll miss it.

I believe it was the commenters on this blog that were convinced that Trois Pomme would make Le Pain fail.

Wrong again.

I never see a soul in Le Pain so the verdict is still out there. I don't remember saying anything like that though.

Jbob, you are like a child though. Always with the "I told you so" mentality.

Do you really have so little a life that these things matter so much to you?

When I lived around the corner from Trois, I went in about once a week. I have to admit, I didn't find their baked goods to be consistent. There were times, I would get something that was rock hard (cookie) or tasted old (piece of cake) This was about 4 years ago.

If they do move to Sunset Park, I think it would be a smart strategy to sell cheaper coffee ($1 - $1.75) and slices of cakes, cookies and pastries - nothing too fancy....

La Pain gives me bad vibes. It just feels so impersonal and corporate. I loved that I could walk into Trois Pommes and describe to Emily what I want and she would make it. She will be missed.

Man, I loved that place. Best cabbage soup!
