Sweet Melissa has been a part of this community since 1998, starting with one storefront and then expanding into the neighboring store a few years later. Melissa's will be missed by many.
According to a note in the window from owner Melissa Murphy, she will be combining this location with her store in Park Slope (175 7th Avenue).
She writes: "We have been a member of this community for many years, and have thoroughly enjoyed being part of your family's special occasions. For many of you, I have made your engagement cake, your wedding cake, your baby shower cake, and your baby's Fisrt Birthday cake. Having been part of your life in this way has truly been an honor, and I look forward to being a part of many wonderful event in the future."
I suppose Park Slope is not too far to travel for Melissa's delectable baked goods, but It sure isn't the same as being able to stop by the store on Court Street.
