Bagel Palace, a New York-style deli located in the Toco Hill shopping center for 25 years, will shut its doors at 4 p.m. Sunday.
The restaurant announced the news with a Facebook post on May 19 at 8:22 p.m.
“We never thought it would end this way when we began a new episode in our lives upon moving to Atlanta, 25 years ago,” the company wrote on its social media. “With the current rent, under the new landlord, it was impossible to stay.”
The restaurant’s building is owned by EDENS, a national retail real estate company. The company acquired the historic North Druid Hills shopping center in 2015. The company also owns other Atlanta sites such as Buckhead Market Place and Sandy Plains Centre in Marietta.
Bagel Palace was known for its extensive selections of bagels and cream cheeses, as well as its bakery. The long-time community establishment also provided extensive kosher-style and holiday options for the Jewish community of North Druid Hills and Atlanta.
“When the lights go out for the last time, know that you will all be remembered dearly,” the restaurant wrote on its post. “We hope to keep in touch and let you know what our next adventure will be.”
Tomorrow’s News Today reports that the company is considering relocating.
Bagel Palace is located at 2869 North Druid Hills Rd, NE. The full Facebook post can be read here.
