1 min read

San Francisco cafe and bakery store is reopening its doors to the public after filing for bankruptcy amid the coronavirus pandemic’s economic impacts.

Popular store Specialty is once again serving customers with delicious breakfast, lunch, and desserts at its Mountain View location. The cafe and bakery store was previously forced to shut down in May 2020.

Additionally, the shop’s original founders, Craig and Dawn, along with their adult children, are the ones running the newly reopened cafe. They are also considering the idea of opening other locations. “We will open additional locations based on customer demand,” the owners said.

Unfortunately, hopeful customers who have gift cards and rewards stored since before the bankruptcy will not be able to redeem them.

“With the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, all assets were liquidated, which, unfortunately, included all Specialty’s Rewards and Gift Cards issued prior to 2021. We will continue to offer the Specialty’s Rewards program — place 12 orders and receive a credit for the average value of those orders. New rewards status info can be found under My Account, Specialty’s Reward Status,” the owners said.

Specialty’s also announced they were adding new items on their menu for customers to try out alongside their original favorites, KRON4 reported.
