It is with sadness a local business of almost half a century closed this past weekend without fanfare or accolade.
Colonial Bakery was the true, behind-the-scenes hero of so many favorite eateries in Madison for 47 years. If you've eaten a sub at Fraboni's or Paisan's, if you've had a burger at Dotty's or Oakcrest, if you ate a brat while cheering on the Badgers at Camp Randall in the 1980s or 1990s, you've enjoyed a Colonial product.
I truly believe it is one of those things in life we won't miss until it's gone. We really appreciate all the accompaniment Colonial Bakery has given to our favorite meals over these years.
