Say it ain’t so! Dinkel’s Bakery is closing after more than 100 years in business. Based on a Chicago Tribune article
The Chicago Tribune reported in 2021 that Dinkel’s was looking to sell the building, and now will be closing at the end of April.
“To our customers and neighbors. Thank you……101 years serving you. But it is time. Dinkel’s will close Saturday, April 30th,” a sign posted on the door of the bakery stated.
The bakery confirmed that while Dinkel’s has been in the family since 1922, the owner has decided to retire. In addition to custom cakes and other desserts, Dinkel’s is known for its “World Famous Stollen” bread made with almonds, cashews, pineapple and golden raisins soaked overnight in rum and brandy.
According to Dinkel’s website, the bakery will still take orders for Easter cakes and pies, available for pick up April 9-16.
