Neighbors on Madison’s east side found one of their favorite hangouts suddenly closed over the weekend.
The 4 & 20 Bakery on N. Fourth Street had become part of the fabric of the neighborhood around East High School.
But on Saturday night, founder, baker, and co-owner Mandy Puntney passed away after becoming ill with bronchitis and a gastrointestinal flu. The cafe has been shuttered, with only a paper sign announcing that it is closed until further notice. A service is set for 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Cress Funeral Services on East Washington Ave.
Producer Alejandro Alonso Galva spoke with some of the 4 & 20 family today.
