A new cafe/bakery is opening on 43rd Avenue that is going to offer everything from fresh bread to burgers.
The establishment, called White Cake Bakery, will be located at 48-11 43rd Avenue and is expected to open soon. However, the owners still need the city to sign off on their gas lines before they can open.
White Cake Bakery is owned by two long-time Sunnyside residents—Yoon Chung and Roberto Ramos. Both have lived in the area for more than a decade, with Chung currently living just three blocks away from the store on 46th Street.
The café/bakery will be open 7 days per week from 7 am to 10pm. Chung said they plan to hire 7 or 8 employees.
Chung said that the café/bakery will have about 30 seats and the menu will include items such as fresh-baked bread, pastries, hamburgers, sandwiches, eggs, cupcakes, birthday cakes and coffee.
“We really want to promote our bread,” Chung said. He said that White Cake Bakery would be offering about 12 varieties of bread.
He said that he is a little anxious about the venture. However, he said, his worries are partly eased since he and his business partner know a lot of people in the neighborhood.
