AUSTIN, Texas — Crema Bakery & Cafe announced on Instagram that it will be closing its doors for good on Sept. 17.
The South Austin bakery, located on 9001 Brodie Lane Suite B3, posted on Instagram to let both the community and its followers know the reasoning behind the closure. The owner cited the pandemic, rising costs of supplies and staffing issues being the root cause.
"The final nail in the coffin was our landlord requiring a minimum five-year lease," the post explained. "We can't even pay rent right now, so I just couldn't do it."
Crema will be creating a "fill the freezer" menu, wherein the bakery will be batch-making fan favorites from the last few years for those that would like to "hold onto the magic for a little longer."
Residents and community members that have been regulars or those who have not yet visited are encouraged by the owner to stop by and to help make the time left about the things the bakery loves: "great coffee, great pastries, friends and community."
