The Icing On The Cake For Atlanta Closings
It was just this past Monday that Matty Cakes Bakery owner, Chef Matt Lewis, was supposed to be a baker’s man, baking a cake as fast as he can at the “Great Desserts” class at Cook’s Warehouse.
Unfortunately, the class was canceled as Lewis was forced to close his bakery located on the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Rock Springs Road in Midtown.
Matty Cakes operated as a breakfast pastries, sandwiches, coffee drinks and, of course, cake shop. A huge “for lease sign” at the space and a call to Cooks Warehouse confirms the closure. Lewis was not reachable though Becky at Cooks Warehouse says he will still be taking personal orders running shop from home.
Atlanta based Publicist with Red Clay PR (clients include major Atlanta yogurt favorite, Yogli Mogli), Jamie Annarino, tipped us off two weeks ago, suspicious that Matty Cakes had closed– a legitimate sign of failure was the empty parking lot and shop.
Closure aside, it’s evident that Lewis is a worthy chef considering some of his recent credentials: judge on Food Networks “Throwdown With Bobby Flay” and “Chef vs. City.”
