 *A Message from the owners, Annie and Anastasia of
Man in the Moon Bake Shop and Cafe

Dear Customers,

We regret to say that Man in the Moon Bake Shoppe and Cafe will be closing. As of Monday, November 3, the the bakery and cafe will no longer be accessible. However, custom cakes, cookies, baked goods and pastry orders will be accepted until November 23.

We would like to thank all of our Man in the Moon Bake Shoppe foodies and fans for your support through the years. We began building our business four and a half years ago and were thrilled to open our little bakery. Little did we know that it would be such a successful. We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed nearly every moment however, as with any business – constant work and no play causes burn out. Also, this year, we reached our next growth milestone in our business plan. Instead of going forward with expansion, we chose not to pursue it. This was a very difficult decision.

We are proud to have been able to contribute in a small way to the Town of Genoa and the neighboring communities of Ithaca, Lansing, Cortland, Auburn, Rochester, Binghamton, Syracuse and beyond. We are grateful and honored that our customers believed in us and supported our healthy choices. We hope our humble establishment brought happiness to our customers with an appreciation for good food and hospitality. We were happy to give back to the community by hosting local art exhibits and showcase local musical talents as well as donating to causes that helped the community at large.

Thank you for your patronage and your friendship. We will miss all of you!  But…

…on a happier note, we’re moving onto other exciting adventures. Our passion for art, fine craftsmanship and antiques have given us an opportunity to open “Only A Paper Moon Art and Antiques.” Currently located at 982 Rt 34B, Suite C, on the north side of bakery building. It’s a curiosity shop filled with new and old, offering wonderful art and fine crafts from local and national artists as well as art cards, special interest books, antiques, funky furniture and vintage/contemporary clothing & accessories. Open on Fridays and weekends from 10am-2 pm and extended hours from October – December. Please feel free to stop in and shop for everyone on your gift list or for yourself. Appointments and requests also available.

Looking to downsize or give family belongings a good home? We buy, accept donations and consign unusual and unique art and antiques, old books, art books, vintage clothing from 1940-present. We are also looking for fine artists & craftspeople to consign their artwork — all artists must submit a sample of their work via the contact page.  Inqueries, call 607-227-6863.

For updates, visit our website (presently on Man in the Moon’s website tab, Paper Moon).

Yours truly,

Annie, Anastasia and staff
