It’s June 1, and even though we’re allowed to open our dining room (with outdoor seating) as of today, it was never our plan to do so — even before the state changed course last week — as we remain concerned with the health risks to our guests and staff. We do hope to be able to open the dining room later this season, but we don’t have a firm date at this point.
Thank you to all our guests who have visited the bakery via the drive-thru and takeout window! We look forward to serving you this way for the time being. Open Thurs-Mon, 6 am to 2 pm.
In the meantime, don’t forget Congdon's After Dark food truck park opens on Thursday (Thurs-Sun, 4-8 pm)! And outdoor seating is kind of our thing! See you soon! ... See MoreSee Less
