Ritzy's Cafe and Backerei at 2765 Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows closed recently after 30 years in business.
Valerie Dehner, Rolling Meadows' community development director, said she had no information about why the restaurant closed.
"All I know is that the owner has been trying to sell the restaurant as long as I've been in town -- seven years," she said. "I think he wanted to retire."
The owner could not be reached for comment Monday. A sign in the restaurant's window thanked patrons. The restaurant served breakfast, lunch and dinner with an extensive menu.
