I’d do anything for LOVE, but I won’t do that…

Dear Customers:

 

We need to reconnect to who we set out to be. A time when things were simpler. My mind jumps back to the November day in 2004 at Bread Stuy when my husband was so excited that I made brioche and was handing them out to random people on Lewis Avenue. “We baked bread!” So, with that spirit in mind, we are rededicating ourselves to bread.

 

We have always been the kind of people that see a need and try to fix it. Being of the neighborhood for almost 20 years, we have struggled like you to find something to eat, certain times, certain days, so we tried to fill that gap. But running a restaurant is not really where our hearts are. It still needs to be done, and we’ve been successful, but it’s not what we are aiming to ultimately do.

 

To our loyal customers who have stuck with us, rediscovered us, been here day in and day out, to the staff who has worked to make this place hum, to the friends and family who have supported us morally, financially, and by being our honest sounding board…. thank you. We cannot thank you enough.

 

This is not a goodbye. This is a rededication to our initial dream and goal of giving skills to those that many deem unteachable. We want to bring our breads to more people in the community… spreading the love, if you will. We will be closing for about a week and coming back with our hearts open and ready to connect. We look forward to continuing to serve you.

 

Love,

Bread Love

Hillary, Lloyd, and MacLemore Porter

#FunkGodJazzMedicine by Creative Time

Bread Love misses Bread Love too!

It’s been a rough summer, we have been scouring real estate looking for a new location and haven’t found anything yet.  We have run into many of our customers & friends during the summer and we thank you for your continued encouragement and support.   The right space will come to us when it is ready. We continue to have hope and promise to keep you posted about upcoming events and/or sales.

In the meantime, GUESS WHAT?!

We will be vending at the 4th annual Audre Lorde Project’s Bed Stuy Pride Festival at Von King park.  Look for us there, selling refreshments and savory items on Sunday, September 7th.

Bread Love will also be selling our wares at Weeksville Heritage Center during Creative Time’s Funk God Jazz and Medicine exhibition that takes place Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Sept 20th to October 12th. Have you checked out the new digs? It’s beautiful! We have been longtime supporters of Weeksville and hope this is the start of something even bigger.  Anyway, lots of music, art & workshops will be present at Weeksville as well as exhibits at 3 other locations (including our former home now called Stuyvesant Mansion). We will have an espresso/coffee bar, cold refreshments, quick pick munchies and some hot meals as well. Stop by and say “Hello!”

In the meantime, please continue to support your local small businesses in the nabe.
