Bostwick Bakery has opened a retail store in Comstock Park. The bakery at 4615 West River Drive, offers all kinds of sweets – donuts, cookies, pastries, scones, and muffins. They also serve breakfast sandwiches and lunch – burgers, hot dogs, chili dogs, sloppy joes, fries, and sandwiches. Drinks include coffee of course, plus milk, juice, hot chocolate, and soda. Within two weeks of the July 6 opening, fresh baked bread was also available.
There are four tables in the 1100 square foot shop where customers can sit and enjoy their sweets and coffee, as well as a coffee bar and soda fountain. There are six employees: four full-time and two part-time. At the end of the day, the employees bag up the baked goods like donuts and Food Share, a food pantry in Plainfield Township, picks them up. Leftover bread gets made into garlic chips.
