ALGONQUIN – Bentley’s Bagels & Brew, 124 S. Randall Road, Algonquin, recently closed its doors.
The bagel and coffee shop in front of grocer Joe Caputo & Sons Fruit Market was shuttered with little notice in November. Its phone has since been disconnected, and its website was down.
A sign on the door reads “CLOSED” and “Thank you for your business!”
Many customers posted on websites and Facebook that Bentley’s Bagels & Brew’s freshly-made bagels will be missed.
Country Donuts in Crystal Lake had been selling bagels from Bentley’s for eight or nine months, said Scott Offord, co-owner with Larry Swanson of the 24-hour restaurant known for its doughnuts and coffee.
“We enjoyed working with [Bentley’s Bagels & Brew],” Offord said. “We were sad to see them go.”
