That's what the plate-shaped signage says here at Empire Biscuit at 198 Avenue A between East 12th Street and East 13th Street.

Empire Biscuit will be closed until March to retool for the coming apocalypse and make pastries.— Empire Biscuit (@empirebiscuit) January 31, 2016
The quick-serve biscuit emporium cut back its hours during January. At the time, Empire Biscuit owner Jonathan Price told us that they were just taking a break for parts of this month. "It's a slow time of year," he said a few weeks ago. "We're doing some housekeeping. We refinished the floors in the kitchen ... for example."
Empire Biscuit opened on Oct. 30, 2013.
