    HONOLULU (AP) — The coronavirus pandemic is claiming a 170-year-old Hawaii institution: Love's Bakery. Hawaii's oldest and largest commercial bakery told state and federal agencies this week that it will close its doors at the end of March and lay off more than 230 employees.

    MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) — The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a crippling blow to many industries, perhaps none more so than restaurants.

So, Ellis is our grand experiment.

    Those Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery sandwiches, salads, soups and cookies you loved so much? They’re baaaaaaaack! Some of them, anyway, along with fresh new spins on longtime favorites. Nine months after the Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery chain filed for bankruptcy, the brand has been resurrected. “Specialty’s original founders, Craig and Dawn (Saxton), missed the business so they’ve returned and they’ve brought their (now grown!) kids with them,” a posting on their Facebook page said. The Saxtons, who launched the cafe in 1987 in San Francisco with Dawn’s recipes, have started again with one location, on Ellis Street in Mountain View, one of the former sites. Reopening Day was Monday.

    BALTIMORE — The coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions that followed have devastated businesses large and small, but they didn't stop Keiller Kyle from following through on bringing a bread bakery to Little Italy's renowned food scene. For Kyle, opening during the pandemic was more than unforeseeable — he had planned to open the bakery in 2019. "Unrealistically, I was going to be opening in the fall of 2019 or the early winter of 2019," Kyle told the Washington Examiner. "That continued to get pushed back as some of the nuances of this particular space, which has been occupied since 1947 as a business, as a very kind of iconic type of corner store for many people not only still living in Little Italy but that have since moved away."

    BRAINTREE (CBS) — Gunther Mosinger just ate tiramisu for breakfast. Not because he has a massive sweet tooth (though he does), but because he wants to make sure it tastes just right. “I ate a piece to control test,” Gunther told WBZ-TV.

    BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanon’s caretaker government raised the price of subsidized bread and flour on Monday for the fourth time in less than a year amid a crippling economic crisis. Lebanon was grappling with the worst economic crisis in its history even before the public health crisis caused by the pandemic. The government defaulted on its foreign debt last year amid growing public debt, dwindling revenues and foreign currency.

Pegged to the dollar for nearly 30 years, the Lebanese pound has now lost 80% of its value as a black market thrives. Unemployment worsened, inflation soared and nearly half of the population is now living below the poverty line. Repeated lockdowns and restrictions because of surge in coronavirus cases has added to the hardship. In a sign of the...

    COHASSET (CBS) – Just off beautiful Jerusalem Road in Cohasset, you can find the picturesque Holly Hill Farm. And a young man virtually obsessed with bread. “I think a lot about bread,” 26-year-old Alec White told WBZ-TV. He’s been trying to perfect his sourdough and baguette processes, and he’s gotten pretty close. “They tell me they love my bread, which surprises me because I always think I can do better job. I can get better at my craft,” he said. The story of how Alec got here is pretty remarkable. He has severe dyslexia and didn’t love traditional school.

    Carlo’s Bakery is shutting down the last remaining location in Texas amid the coronavirus pandemic. The bakery, made famous through the TLC show “Cake Boss,” first opened in 2016 and closed on Dec. 7, according to an article published by The Dallas Morning News. Another Carlo’s Bakery was opened in Frisco in 2017, but that location closed in February of 2020. Instead of a brick and mortar store, Carlo’s Bakery intends to open roughly 100 “cake ATMs” around the state of Texas, the outlet reported. The cake ATMs already exist in Canada and the model has survived the pandemic, according to the outlet.
