The Curse of the Concrete Island in Amarillo Claims Another, Sort Of
When a business closes in Amarillo, it breaks our hearts. Especially when it is a locally owned business and they close their doors.
The Eatery on 6th closed their doors. We do realize that we are far behind with this news. It wasn't until a group of us were talking about The Eatery on the 6th that someone said, they closed.
We shared some history with you and the list of businesses that have occupied this building at 2601 SW 6th. We were rooting for The Eatery on 6th. But, sadly yes, The Eatery on 6th is closed. It was such a lovely place to go and get some amazing baked goods.
Even though Concrete Island claimed another business, it didn't really, just a storefront.
Although what we knew as The Eatery on 6th is closed, something new has emerged. The delicious goodies are still available and Miss Shaniece is still baking up everything you love. However, just not in a storefront.
According to the website for Strange and Unusual Sweets,
After five years of running The Eatery on Route 66, I decided to downsize and get back to doing what I love-baking high quality sweets from scratch. I brought all of my equipment home and opened Amarillo’s only ghost bakery 👻 I’ve spent my life feeling out of place and trying to fit myself into spaces not meant for me. It’s time to embrace the weird. I express myself through food and I can’t wait to share something spooky sweet with you.
And something spooky is what is being served up!
Not only that, just look at this delicious bread
Oh and did we mention Macaroons?
Although we are sad to see The Eatery on 6th closed, we are super excited that the heart and soul of that business is still going strong cooking up amazing spooky treats!
