Sweet Generation is leaving the East Village

After nearly six years at 130 First Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place, Sweet Generation is closing up its bakery ahead of a move to a larger location in Brooklyn.

Per their Instagram this morning:
Come by and say goodbye to our tiny little adorable shop ❤️ We are so sad to go, and also so excited for our next big step opening our beautiful new space in Brooklyn (right off the Jefferson L stop). 
The shop will be open today until 3 p.m. They'll be open for curbside pickup only on Saturday, Sunday and Monday ... taking orders by phone: (646) 964-5777. Closed for good starting on Tuesday. And there are sales are elect items. 

Sweet Generation partners with several nonprofit organizations and local high schools to create an internship program that teaches baking, food safety, customer service, work readiness, and entrepreneurship to teens and young adults from low-income communities.

Yeah. Sorry to see them go, too. Always good service and their brownies were excellent.

Sorry to see such a community asset go, however I still miss the previous pierogi place at that address that gave such character to our neighborhood.
