Bagel Palace in Toco Hills is closed. The 25-year-old Jewish deli and bakery in the Toco Hills Shopping Center on North Druid Hills Road sold their last bagel and reuben Sunday afternoon. The owners announced the closure on Facebook Saturday. It seems rent—which according to one owner doubled under the deli’s new landlord—is to blame. Toco Hills Shopping Center is owned by real estate development firm Edens.
The Facebook post is filled with well-wishers, shocked regulars, and pleas to relocate. Bagel Palace responds at one point to comments saying, “ It is very hard to sit here and read these wonderful comments. You were all like family to us. It will be sad to wake up and not be able to go home to the Bagel Palace.”
There’s hope, however, the shop could relocate. Bagel Palace replies to one person’s question regarding relocation saying, “We are looking very close by.” They reaffirm that statement throughout the thread.
