Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery, a Pleasanton-based chain that had locations around the West Coast and as far away as Chicago, announced Sunday that it is going out of business after 33 years, an apparent victim of the 2019 novel coronavirus health emergency.

It’s last day of operation would be Tuesday, the company said in an announcement posted Sunday on its website.

The chain said in its post:

“Current market conditions attributed to Covid-19 and shelter-in-place policies have decimated company revenues.”

Terry Chay Specialty’s Cafe & Bakery, based in Pleasanton, Calif., announced it will shut down all of its chains after Tuesday, May 19, 2020. The restaurant has been in business for 33 years.

Offerings at Specialty’s included soup, salad, sandwiches, baked goods and a coffee bar.

In the Bay Area it had eight locations in San Francisco, three in San Mateo County, eight in Santa Clara County, four in Alameda County and one in Contra Costa County.

Since the start of the shelter order it had been promoting delivered orders via GrubHub and donations for meals delivered to health care workers at Veterans Administration hospitals and other locations.
