La Boite Cafe, the artisan-focused cafe-in-a-shipping-container, will shutter next week because it has lost its bakery wholesaler and just can't find a quality replacement. There are two locations, one at 1006 Congress Avenue downtown and another in South Austin at 1700 South Lamar Boulevard. Via Facebook, the announcement from owners Victoria Davies and Dan Bereczki:
Since we got the notice we spent time evaluating options and possible new providers. The unfortunate and heartbreaking conclusion we have come to is that we there are no options available that we feel would match the standard we've offered up until now. That's not to say that the product isn't out there, it's just not an option for us to wholesale purchase the only products we would want to carry at La Boite.Their last day in business will be Saturday, November 17th.
