The Capitol Hill cupcakes storefront at 411 18th Street is closing, but the cupcakes shall endure. You can still place orders for cupcakes, and plans are in the works for a food truck. Full details from the owner after the jump.
Over ten weeks have elapsed since we opened the window at the Capitol Hill Bakery, ex-Cafe Roma, to introduce you to our gourmet cupcakes. Once again, you showed your support by visiting our store and purchasing the cupcakes and expressing your encouragement. We are very grateful for this continued support, and we will endeavour to excel in serving you in the future.
As you know, given its location, our store is not yet ideal for retail activity. Many people tell us that the development of the entire neighbourhood is some years down the road. We know this from the experience of Cafe Roma, and it was confirmed these days as the flow of customers does not cover the costs of operations. The reason for opening our store during the weekends was merely to introduce our products to our patrons and to establish direct contact. Therefore, we would like to inform you that the storefront of Capitol Hill Cupcakes, will close on Sunday, October 30st.
However, we would like to explain to our patrons that the operations of the bakery are open, and that you can place your orders any time during the weekdays, provided that you give us twenty-four hours lead time. In addition, we are in the process of acquiring a food truck; hence we will be able to serve you better by bringing our products to your area.
We will keep you informed about the launch of the food truck operations soon.
Thank you once again for your kind support.
The management of Capitol Hill Bakery
