Coco's Bakery and Restaurant on East Coast Highway in Corona del Mar has been a gathering place for many families and neighbors for decades, but the good times are coming to a quick end, according to a Daily Pilot report.
Jerry Bermudes, the restaurant's general manager, told the newspaper the restaurant is scheduled to close on March 10. Bermudes saud he did not know the reason behind the restaurant's closure, but said employees have been hearing about it "for more than a year."
Today about 30 people work at the restaurant, and many locals say they are sad to see it go.
Newport Beach City Councilwoman Nancy Gardner told the Daily Pilot she remembers Coco's being in town since as far back as the 1950s. She even worked there one summer.
Coco's is located in Corona del Mar at 3446 E. Coast Hwy. Read the full story on the Daily Pilot.
