Palo Alto: Bon Vivant to be replaced by bakery

Uploaded: May 17, 2017

Downtown Palo Alto has lost a French restaurant but will soon gain a bakery with the opening of Tuts Bakery & Cafe at 535 Bryant St., the former home of Bon Vivant.

A message posted on Bon Vivant's website announced the closure: "After 6 wonderful years in Palo Alto, Bon Vivant Dining is now closed. We have exciting plans for the future, and hope to see many of our customers join us in our new ventures to come."

The restaurant did not return a request for comment.

Windows of the Bryant Street space have been covered with bright yellow signs advertising Tuts Bakery & Cafe. Online job listings describe Tuts as an "up and coming new bakery and cafe" opening locations in Palo Alto and San Francisco's Hayes Valley neighborhood.

Tuts will serve fresh pastries, bread made in house and coffee. The owners hope to be open in Palo Alto by the end of June and in San Francisco in September. More locations across California and the country are on the way as well.
