The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Di Lusso Bakery Cafe in Downtown Bend Closes

Di Lusso, the popular downtown bakery and coffee shop abruptly closes.

Posted By on Wed, Feb 9, 2011 at 10:56 PM

On my way downtown this afternoon (to pump some iron, of course) I noticed a printed sign on the door of Di Lusso Bakery Cafe explaining that yesterday was the popular coffee shop and bakery's last day in operation.

The sign cites "unforeseen circumstances" as the reason for the abrupt closure and offers some heartfelt thanks for the years of patronage their customers had provided them.

A man walked past me as I was reading it, stopped, and said, "Sad, isn't it?"

Yes, it is sad. This was one of my favorite spots to conduct interviews with local musicians, politicians and anyone else I needed to talk to for the paper.
