What a bummer! I haven’t gone out in a while, but today I went to my fave Italian Bakery, Angelo’s to pick up goodies for the weekend. I have been craving for that lemon ring cake, my all time favorite from this place. I am very well aware that they are normally close on Mondays. Today is Friday and as I was parking, I noticed the steel bars were down.
I went ahead anyway to find out why they are closed. I knew for a fact that they take a couple of weeks break in the summer, but I didn’t expect them to be closed for Labor Day weekend. I found out that the bakery has been closed by the Department of Sanitation for violations.
This bakery is family owned and prides itself for having been in business for decades. This is the only bakeshop, nowhere else. Who would have thought they will be found violating sanitation standards. The bakeshop is presented as clean and neat the way a food place should be.
I’m so disappointed. I have never had the desire and drive to learn how to bake because of the bakeshop’s proximity and convenience, not to forget the quality and yummy goodies they make. Now, I think this is a good enough reason for me to start buying the different baking gadgets and start to learn. It won’t be that bad I think. Now that I have a lot of time in my hands, this will for sure get me preoccupied. I can’t wait!
