[UPDATE] Corner Bakery Cafe Closes in Alpharetta

Corner Bakery Cafe has permanently closed its Alpharetta location at 10920 Haynes Bridge Road near North Point Mall.  The bakery cafe opened October 28, 2013, and after being marked "temporarily closed" for the past few months, has now been removed from the Corner Bakery website.  A "for lease" sign from Brand Properties appeared in the restaurant's window within the past few days, according to local readers.  

Originally created by Chicago's Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises (LEYU) in 1991, the chain has changed hands several times over the years and since 2011, has been owned by Atlanta-based private equity firm Roark Capital Group.    Corner Bakery Cafe is one of many restaurant concepts owned by Atlanta-based Roark Capital Group.  

Corner Bakery has in years past closed locations on Peachtree Street at Colony Square in Midtown and within the Maggiano's Little Italy at Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody.  

In addition to the permanent closure in Alpharetta, Corner Bakery locations on Peachtree Parkway in Peachtree Corners, in Lenox Square in Buckhead and in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, remain "temporarily closed."  Other Atlanta area Corner Bakery locations remain open on Ashford Dunwoody Road in Dunwoody, on Peachtree Road in Maggiano's Little Italy in Buckhead, on Cobb Parkway in Akers Mill Square near Cumberland Mall, and on Peachtree Street downtown at the Southern Building.

There are approximately 200 Corner Bakery Cafe locations nationwide.  

Are you surprised that Corner Bakery has permanently closed its Alpharetta location?  What is your favorite bakery cafe type restaurant?  What would you like to see open in place of the former Corner Bakery?

This is not shocking at all. The operating hours had been reduced to breakfast and lunch before the pandemic.

Agree, not surprised. Found Hudson's grille also closed yesterday and it looks like on The border's also permanently closed. There's not going to be a whole lot left in the area.

Not surprised. Never remembered it was there and the service was subpar when we did go there before Covid.

Socked that Hudson Grill lasted as long as it did. That was a huge location and never had more then maybe 10-12 customers the few times we ate there.

Not a surprise that it closed due to the change in hours.

Hardee's has closed their location at 91 South Main Street, Alpharetta.

Not surprised at all. One more casualty to virus hype. One wonders what will remain when all is said and done.
