Once home to a popular downtown bar, a Water Street building that has sat empty for the past four years will become a cafe and bakery.

Angel’s Bakery and Cafe will open in the space once occupied by the Catamount Bar and Grille, a two-story bar that was a haunt for locals and an alluring venue for adventurous tourists. The bar shut its doors in 2010 after 15 years in business. The Catamount housed pool tables and the periodic touring or local band. Its demise is often mentioned in conversations regarding Santa Fe’s sparse nightlife.

    Will they make bread? We haven't had much choice in the way of sandwich loaves since a couple of local bakeries have closed in the not too distant past.

    Wish them well in their new location but notice the article said nothing about
    their product line and it ingredients. Will they carry GMO and gluten free items for those of us trying to stay healthy ? Nice to know and if so put me down as a regular.
    After all if they haven't noticed there is a big push locally to label our food and their success could hinge on addressing the issue. thanks
