Longtime Saint Philip Street staple Brown’s Court Bakery announced its closing on Instagram today, stating that the last day to visit will be November 17. Owner David Schnell thanked his customers in the post; “None of this would have been possible without your continued support,” he wrote.

Brown’s Court opened in November 2012 with products novel (at the time) to the Lowcountry, like pretzel bread, milk bread, and Sriracha croissants.

Over the years, Schnell and his team have supplied breads to many of the top restaurants in town and fed many hungry, or hungover, tourists and students in the Cannonborough/Elliotborough neighborhood. The Brown’s Court doughnuts, croissants, and breakfast sandwiches will surely be missed.
