Truffles Pastry Shop Closes

A landmark in the West Side’s historic Edgewater/Clifton neighborhood for nearly 25 years, Truffles Pastry Shop (11122 Clifton Blvd.) closed abruptly on July 31. Owner Dan Sheppard could not be reached for comment, but I understand that conflicts with his landlord over building maintenance and increasing crime in the neighborhood played a role. At one time, the popular bakery and café anchored a block of small independent businesses, including an ice cream spot and Sean’s Place, a small “American comfort food” restaurant. Now Plants Plus floral shop is all that remains. That, and Sheppard’s signature sidewalk garden, of course, a seasonal tumble of flowers that was nearly as beloved by the shop’s fans as the indulgent baked goods. “All that’s left are the sunflowers,” sighed one would-be café-goer. --- Elaine T.
