We were dismayed to receive the following from Suzanne Aylward, owner of Susu Bakery & Cafe, a goodbye letter as beautifully crafted as one of her many baked goods:
To my loyal customers, friends and neighbors,
As my Dad, Paul, was fond of saying, “It’s simple but it’s not easy.” Truer words were never spoken…It’s time to say goodbye to Susu Bakery and Cafe. It’s simple but it’s not easy. We’ve had some wonderful times and were fortunate to work alongside some great, talented cooks and bakers and formed life long friendships through this shop. Working alongside with my Mum and Dad, we had lots of fun and made lots of happy memories.
I’ve enjoyed watching your kids grow up and was honored to make their birthday cakes, communion cakes, graduation cakes, and even some wedding cakes. I am humbled to have been part of your lives and memories. I will cherish that as I move on to my next chapter.
Susu Bakery will be closing it’s door on Saturday, July 15th.
Everything will be for sale – furnishings, art, pots and pans… our delicious brownies and baked goods all of next week through Saturday at our beautiful Church Square location.
Please stop by. If only so I can tell you thanks in person for the past 17 years! And as for me, sugar, butter and flour will always be in my future. We’ll be in touch!
We’re sorry to see you go, Susu. Thanks for the great French dinner, when you partnered with La Voile Boston Brasserie, and for the countless cups of coffee, tea, cookies, and cupcakes you kept in steady supply. All the best to you on your next venture.
