Due to the passing of the family matriarch, Senhora Julieta Amaral, Sunrise Bakery & Coffee Shop locations will be closed on December 19 as they remember and celebrate their mother's life.

Their two locations will re-open for business on Saturday, December 20. If you have any orders or needs for bread, pastry or services from the bakery, please plan accordingly.

I have fond memories of working along side Senhora Julieta in the summer of 2000. I was fortunate enough to work at Sunrise when I came home from college that summer. Every Sunday morning, she would come in to make the malassadas. I would help her sugar coat them. She was a wonderful woman and has left behind a legacy of children who carry on her spirit. We send our deepest condolences to the Amaral family at this time of loss.
