A Southwest bakery know for its breads, tarts and caramel rolls has closed.

Lucky Oven Bakery at 54th & Penn shut its doors in February, according to a sign posted on the front door.

“We are sad to announce that we have had to close our doors,” the sign read. “We have loved serving this community and we are grateful to have been a part of this great neighborhood.”

Lucky Oven opened in November 2017. Owner Kristy Dirk decorated the space with 52 Easy-Bake Ovens she’d collected over the years.

She started her own bakery after producing pastries at nearby Red Wagon Pizza and Salty Tart.
