Panade on Eldridge is Closed for ‘Restructuring’ and Will Focus on Catering
This image has been archived or removed.
Panade Puffs and Pastries – a fixture on Eldridge Street for years – is on a hiatus of sorts. The letter on its front door is perhaps the first sign of demise for the eight-year-old business. Despite assurances that “all is fine” during “restructuring” efforts, we can’t help but believe the opposite. This more permanent break follows the previously announced timeout taken during the last couple weeks of August.
While store hours are suspended, however, Panade will continue to operate for custom orders and catering.
Public school teacher turned baker Yvette Ho opened the grab-and-go cafe at 129 Eldridge Street in 2009, serving a variety of custom puffs, pastries, sandwiches, and beverages. Four years later, it moved across Eldridge into a larger space. That didn’t last long, though; Woodward Gallery’s Ghost bar/”project space” forced Ho back to the old digs in 2012 where they’ve been ever since.
