Baldanza's Bakery in Beachwood, closed for good?

A month or two ago we were in there for bread and the display cases were empty. They said they lost their baker but were still selling bread. Now when I drive past it looks closed up. I thought they had contracts with local sub shops/pizza places/schools and that would've kept them going. No local bakeries left. Sad.

Anyone hear anything?

    They are renovating right now, Mr Baldanza is renting to new tenants. From what I heard bakery and more deli items to be served!

      Hooray! Good news. I must agree that place needed some updating.

      If the Italian bread is good, they will come!

      I am dying for a good roasted pepper/fresh mozzerella sandwich.

      There seems to be some signs of life. The other day when I drove past, the dumpsters were loaded up with ripped out drywall and lights were on inside. Here's hoping!

        I loved the rye and marble rye bread.

          It's been closed and boarded up with "no trespassing" signs for several weeks. I haven't heard anything about why.

            Too bad. I was hoping it was temporary. I'm guessing LaScala is going to get alot more business this holiday season.

            Thanks Njchicaa.
