A Toast (And A Bagel) To Westport’s Maven

Tomorrow (Sunday, March 1) is Bagel Maven’s last day in business. Owner Alex Perdomo moves on, eager to continue elsewhere.

Friends and customers will honor him today, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Black Duck. All are invited!

The Last Bagel: The Sequel

The last day of September was the last day for Bagel Maven.

“06880” reader Phil Nourie was one of many loyal patrons trying to help out today.

But, Phil said, time ran out. Owner Alex Perdomo rented a U-Haul, and loaded up at 5:30 p.m.

Alex said:

Even though I must leave today, I am grateful for the time I had here. The customers have been wonderful to me, they became my friends and it is my hope to stay in Westport if I can find another space soon. God bless everyone. Thank you!

At closing time, Alex’s very last bag of bagels went to a volunteer from Westport’s Home with Hope shelters. That was fitting, as he often dropped off extra bagels during his 5-year Post Road run.
