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.
