  1. No, Bessie died just last year at age 98. (Obit: http://obits.nj.com/obituaries/starledger/obituary.aspx?n=BESSIE-KELLY&pid=179747930) Up until age 95 she was still working there (and driving a car!).

    Sad to hear of Robert’s passing. I liked this place a lot and miss it. Supreme Bakery has been selling soup made with their recipes, not sure if he was actively involved or not. I have a pint of their mulligatawny in my fridge which I will eat today in tribute to a nice man and a damn good cook.
