Atwater Village bakery discovers that not even your safe is safe from burglars

Atwater Village Bakery & Cafe

ATWATER VILLAGE — The Instagram and Facebook page of The Village Bakery & Cafe is mostly filled with photos of colorful and mouth-watering cookies, cakes and brunch specials. But this week the most notable photo was a blurry, black-and-white surveillance camera shot of the burglars who broke in this weekend, stealing a wide variety of items, including the bakery’s safe.

The break-in at the Los Feliz Boulevard bakery took place on Friday morning, according to the bakery’s social media accounts. After smashing through a front window, the burglars took computer and stereo equipment as well as the store safe. “The. Entire. Safe,” said a Facebook post.

“We thank you all for the love and concern you’ve shown us over the past few days,” the bakery said on Facebook. “Many have asked if there’s anything you can do for us and my answer is yes: just keep walking through our doors and keep telling your friends about us! We love you all and we believe in karma!”
