"Bon Boniere is currently closed. We will be serving our last ice cream on March 2nd starting at 5 p.m. Come say goodbye. We have enjoyed serving you over the years."
Thus proclaimeth the answering machine message for Eureka's Bon Boniere signaling that, after more than 100 years in Humboldt, the scooping will soon cease. Your only/last chance to consume the ice cream shop's superfluous calories will be during this Saturday's Arts Alive. Line up, mouths.
The closure comes a mere five months after owner Kellen Moore decided to close their Arcata Plaza location.
Old Town ice cream cravers are not without respite though. We'll note that Living the Dream Ice Cream just opened a couple weeks back two blocks down the street. Sun(dae)rise, sun(dae)set.
The Journal has a call out to Moore and will update this post when more information is available.
