RIP: Thee's Bakery

I was at Farmer's Market today for the kid's weekly sticker fleecing and stopped by Thee's to stock up on buns. The place was drowning in hamburger buns and other special orders, which I mentioned. Turns out they were all special orders in anticipation of Thee's Closing. I didn't know. The space is being converted to Nancy Silverton's dominion. Of course, I bought all the buns they had but now I realize I forgot the hot dog buns.

RIP: perfect hamburger buns, so soft, so gentle, so rich and perfectly sized

  1. Many changes occuring in that sector of the market. With 30-day leases, the owners are looking to energize that side of the market, and Nancy is but one of many changes to take place in the very near term.

      Hum. Interesting. There are plenty of pointless businesses at the farmer's market but I don't know that they always make wise choices. Who needs another Pinkberry and Johnny Rockets? And why isn't there a single organic ANYTHING at the market?

      Silverton's bakery will probably be very good

        Right? Both chinese food places are CRAP, as is the pizza place near bobs donuts. Thee's is actually a very good bakery and i've never had a dessert there that i didn't enjoy. Too bad it's leaving the market.

    2. oh no, i love that place. have been sad to not be able to get their amazing cinnamon rolls when they shut down their space in the center of the market. this is just a bummer.

      1. Are they going out of business for good, or planning to reopen somewhere else?

          According to their facebook page, that's it. 31 years was enough!

        2. omg! that is tragic. Goodbye to the best Princes Cake ( in fact better than any cake) I have eaten in LA

          1. Thee's is gone. Went to the market yesterday :(
