Bread Basket Cafe II, located on 8th Street and Elm, will be closing its doors on Saturday, December 13.

News of BBC II's closing was met with surprise and sadness from staff and regulars at the restaurant, including Server Taylor Baker.

"I am so sad. Not only is it a great place to hang out, we have kind of become a family here and even the regulars too," Baker said. "It is definitely one of my favorite places to be."

Baker said she was called in late last week for the announcement, but not given much more detail other than the date.
