“Dear Bloomingdale neighbors,
As you may have heard by now, Sylvan Cafe and Bakery is coming to the neighborhood!
First let us say how grateful we are to Sara Fatell and the beautiful establishment she created in Grassroots Gourmet. Our top priority as the new owners of this space will be to honor her creation of a warm and inclusive community gathering spot where neighbors can come and enjoy great food, drink and company.
It’s no accident that when we chose to launch another business we did it close to home. From the day we opened Bacio Pizzeria around the corner on Seaton Place, Bloomingdale has been an incredibly welcoming community. From Bloomingdale Toddler Soccer Team to the annual Crispus Attucks Park community yard sale to participating in Bloomingdale Beautification Day we have tried to support it right back. And when we saw an opportunity open our next dream business – a bakery! — right in the same neighborhood and build on the relationships we have with our beloved customers, we jumped at it.
Which brings us to the name, Sylvan Café and Bakery. (more…)
