City Girl Donuts Will Not Reopen Shop in Rocky River

City Girl Donuts, which had been temporarily closed since March 6, will not reopen, according to owner Barbara Fazio.

“We had a great business,” she says.

City Girl Donuts opened with a bang last fall in Rocky River, with lines literally snaking down the block. The shop was operated by owner Fazio and pastry chef-partner Erica Coffee, and things were going great until February, when Coffee departed the business to pursue other opportunities. She was replaced by Maggie Downey, who had worked at Coquette Patisserie, BonBon Pastry & Café, and Save Room Bakery.



On March 6, Downey suffered an injury that sidelined her and, apparently, the entire operation. But the decision to not reopen the shop, reports Fazio, entails more than just a loss of kitchen talent.

"It was my dream to bring a unique product to market and it worked," Fazio says. "I just decided to move on."
