A popular coffee haunt has closed its doors permanently, citing “circumstances beyond their control”, while a bakery along the docks has also announced plans to shut up shop.

Union Grind on Union Quay, is nestled among a number of busy bars - including Charlies, El Fenix and LAttitude wine bar - all across from City Hall.

The trendy coffee shop thanked their “wonderful customers” for their support over their past seven years of trading in the area.

The owner said they “enjoyed every minute of it.”

Also closing down is The Flakey Bakery at the Marina Market.

The Flakey Bakery was a spin off from Alchemy Coffee which is on Barrack Street and also at the Marina Market.

The establishment, which is on Instagram as @pureflakey, posted on social media yesterday to say it was “with a heavy heart” they were announcing plans to close on Sunday May 8 “for the foreseeable future.” 

The bakery said they did not make the decision lightly. 

“We are beyond devastated that we can’t continue to provide you with all the Flakey goodness. Trust us, the cruffins will miss you too!” 

The team thanked everyone who supported them at the Marina Market.
