Scotch Bakery Trades Pies For The Pie-Eyed

Sign posted on window of Scotch Bakery announces an application for a liquor license. It appears that at least one of the Favaloros have had enough of that “spending time with the family” and are going back into the evening restaurant business.

Sad that another PG institution goes by the wayside. Scotch Bakery was mentioned in John Steinbeck’s book Cannery Row and was an alternative to DeSmets back in the days when downtown PG was more for residents than visitors. Some say since SB was sold it has not been as good as it was anyway. Well so much for historical stores, make way for more alcohol and pasta. For real good bakery stuff, check Pavel’s across from Grove Market. There’s nothing on Lighthouse Avenue worth checking.

Favaloros had a restaurant that closed soon after the owner, Anthony Favaloro was arrested for allegedly choking his mother-in-law there one night. I notice that his name is not on the liquor license or fictitious name statement for this restaurant.

  1. David,you say that lighthouse avenue is not worth checking out but you….the idiot are always taking pictures on lighthouse and slandering people that mind their own business.

  2. well, all of PG knews who you are “David Palmer”. So sorry you feel that the Scotch Bakery is not worth stopping for. They have a nice clientele who know what good pastries are. You, most likely enjoy grocery store kind of cakes etc. the kind that are smothered in shortening. You have no class, buddy. And as for “pasta and alcohol” You never had a good pasta and a nice glass of vino. Give it up David…..we all know who you are … hobo.

  3. Well I might be a ‘hobo’ that likes Pavel’s, but I was never arrested for choking my mother in law in downtown PG. I also do not drag my children into dubious press statements explaining the shutdown of a business. And I don’t get into quarrels with family at work – not good for business.

    So it looks like the Favaloros are leaving that “nice clientèle” OUT IN THE COLD because no one was buying their “good pastries”. A landmark storefront is now gone and becomes another hometown Olive Garden.

    If Anthony Favaloro’s name was on that permit, it would have gotten protested (or not even considered?), but it looks like his name has been left off. I wonder why?
