La Bombe, formerly located at 3020 H Street, closed on Jan. 1.
The ice cream shop, which opened about 18 months ago, was selected by the Sac Bee as one of the top 10 frozen treats around Sacramento in July 2012. Upon closing, it left these signs on the door.
La Bombe Ice Cream & More wishes to thank you, our valued patrons! We regret to inform you that La Bombe shall be closed for business effective January 1, 2014.
For Information regarding the purchase or sublease of the business or to contact us for other reasons, please do so at: 916-448-2334.
I placed a call to that number on Monday evening, but there was no answer.
La Bombe was owned by the ex-wife of the owner of midtown's Aioli.
A shop whose description closely matched La Bombe is listed on the Restaurant Exchange Web site for $50,000.
I hope something new and interesting fills that void soon.
