Chinese Custard Spot Folds

It’s hard to mourn the loss of a bakery when it has another location literally around the corner, but hey, this is the location we went to for our red-bean ice drinks, and so it’s with the making of a tear in our eye that we report Manna House Bakery (a Voice pick for Best Pastries in 2008) has lost its lease at 212 Grand Street. If you’re looking for pineapple buns or custard, you’ll have to walk over to Manna House’s other outposts at 87 East Broadway, 125 Mott, or 27 Catherine Street.
