Lucille’s Bakery was a great little pastry shop in The Fan–I stopped in many mornings on the way to work. Stephanie Breijo has all the details of the closure.
From Richmond Magazine:
A neon-pink sign on the front door reads, “The Bakery has closed. Thank you for your support. It has been a great 10 years. —Gerry”
Gerald “Gerry” Fortin opened his Fan-area bakery after years as a farmers market staple; the pastry chef grew his passion to a storefront at 2118 W. Cary St. six years ago and, ultimately, into a baked-goods boon sitting just off Broad Street. More than a decade of wedding cakes, cookie trays, house-made granola bars, cupcakes, baguettes and pastries later, the little bakery, breakfast and lunch spot last located at 719 N. Meadow St. closed.
The full statement from Fortin, as posted on the bakery’s Facebook page, reads:
We have closed the Bakery for good it’s time to move on to other things. I want to thank everyone for their support for these past 10 years. We especially need to thank the Williamsburg Farmer’s Market and all the wonderful patrons. Lamplighter Roasting Company, Willow Oaks CC, Country Club of Va, VMFA, Sticky Rice and Sticky togo, Citizen Restaurant. Thank you to all who came to our retail shop. It’s been a great 10 years I have meet a lot of passionate people who love the food business. Best wishes to all. Gerry
