Corner Bakery in Fountain Valley is the latest in the chain to close.

The news roiled Facebook users who saw city councilor Kim Constantine post about the restaurant’s demise.

Commenters were quick to point out the change was “inevitable” when you “charge $20-plus for a sandwich.”

Residents who ventured into the FV location said store employees told them they’d be moving to the Bella Terra location.

“I liked CB, but unfortunately their prices did not match the quality of food compared to other local restaurants,” wrote Marastella Gutierrez on a Facebook post by city council member Kim Constantine. “I have also noticed this far before the pandemic. I will miss the cookies for sure.”

Last year, Corner Bakery’s owners Pandya Group filed for bankruptcy protection in February. Saddled with debt, the company began closing certain stores, including one in Orange at the Outlets at Orange retail center and in Brea at the corner of Imperial Highway and South Brea Boulevard.

Both the Orange and Brea eateries had been serving soups, sandwiches and baked goods at their respective locations for nearly 20 years.
