  1. Oh no! I was wondering what was going on with lulu’s kitchen recently, it was always closed. Too bad, I thought the food was tasty and it was a cute space. Just glad to hear the bakery will stick around, love those cupcakes!

  2. Agree. What a shame. Best egg salad and meatloaf sandwiches I ever had. Tough location though…..
    Wishing Sandy continued success with the Parmenter location!
