After more than 10 years, the owners of Pembroke Bakery & Café announced that the business is for sale.
Angie Quinn and Steve Nagy opened the café inside the Auer Center for Arts and Culture in 2011. Pembroke serves vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as baked goods that are often allergy-friendly.
In a social media post, the owners shared that Quinn took a job in Michigan last summer. It has been harder to manage the business and balance family life while commuting between two states.
The plan is to remain open, with Quinn and Nagy hoping to transition the business to new owners.
