Fans of a beloved Queens bakery that was facing eviction won’t need to bid farewell to their favorite custom cakes and croissants, at least for now.
The owner of Bonelle Pastry Shop — which was told to vacate its Ascan Ave. spot in Forest Hills at the end of 2014, after more than 20 years in the neighborhood — is in negotiations to stay, according to supporters in the community.
“Bonelle is not being evicted and has been given a fair rent increase on their existing lease,” said Josh Peskay, who helped organize support for the bakery when word of its closure spread last November.
An outcry from neighbors and help from the new Dunkin’ Donuts next door may have convinced landlord Chaim Babad of Real Estate Management Co. to reconsider. Babad and Bonelle owner Rahita Ravel could not be reached for comment.
