March was a bittersweet month for restaurant openings and closings
It doesn’t seem possible that a bakery could close for being too successful,
right? But that’s how Michele Kaminski, the owner of the Pink Box
Bakeshop in Lawrence, explained why she was closing her bakery last
month: She was working so hard that she had no life.
not the reason that an Overland Park sweet shop, Sugar Mama’s Bakery,
closed during the same time period. But the good news — for fans of
pastries, anyway — is that while two bakeries closed, a new bakery
opened in midtown. A vegan bakery, no less.
So you might look back at the turbulent month of March and say it was a bittersweet time for the dining scene in the metro.
