Dear Friends & Neighbors.
THANK YOU for stopping by! We are cobbling together a pathway to save our family business and return to serving our community. It’s not done yet, but TODAY is a giant leap forward. If you would like to join us on the next part of this journey, we would like to express our gratitude in advance!
Today we reopened our Allston café with a limited selection of coffee and baked goods. We’ll be open from 7 AM – 1 PM on weekdays and 8 AM – 1 PM on the weekends. This is a soft and partial re-opening. Helene, Thomas, Tobey and Nick are baking, cleaning and serving. We can’t yet bring back wage-earning employees, but we hope to soon, if this goes well. With a few more major hurdles to jump, we hope to start operating in our other locations as soon as possible and of course, we hope to make this permanent.
We can’t tell you how joyful we felt yesterday prepping food and cleaning up the café to prepare to welcome guests. It was the brightest day we’ve had in a long time.
Today we are cautiously optimistic. Despite the issues that required us to close in December, we have been working very hard since then on various restart strategies. A small group of pro-bono advisors has helped us get to this day. Our partial re-opening this week is just the first step to putting us on the pathway to launching swissbäkers 2.0.
If you have the time to stop by it would be great to see you! If you are inclined to introduce a friend, that would be great too. We will have to claw our way back but as always; we look forward to serving you!
Thank you so much for your love and support,
Helene, Thomas, Tobey & Nick
To the best guests in the world and our friends and family,
Thanks to everyone that has reached out to show love and support for swissbäkers and the community we have all become. We were heartbroken to close-up shop December 7th. Since our last bake-off, we have been working on a strategy to live on. No conclusions yet but we are hopeful.
Meanwhile we would like to stay in touch. Below are a few ways you can help us with the possible re-opening and launch of swissbäkers 2.0!

Thanks again for all your support and Happy Holidays!
The swissbäkers family – Helene, Thomas, Tobey and Nick
