Corner Bakery in Crystal Lake closes

CRYSTAL LAKE – After 11 years in Crystal Lake, the Corner Bakery Café at 815 Cog Circle has closed its doors.

A sign in the window said "It's been our pleasure" and encouraged customers to visit the chain's other Chicago and suburban locations.

The restaurant was in a multitenant retail building that is part of the Archway East development along Route 14. The Bradford Real Estate Companies 12,000-square-foot retail development project was completed in 2002. Tenants have included Vitamin Shoppe, Chicago Home Fitness, Corner Bakery, Nextel, Portillo's and TGI Friday's.
