I was stunned and saddened to read of the sudden closing of the Stonyfield Cafe
. It was one of the first restaurants my husband and I tried when we moved here in 2003. We were already delighted to learn of the great restaurants in Portland, and here was one that emphasized delicious, healthy food at a moderate price. What a great concept; we were sold.
It was the favorite place of our grandkids, who couldn’t get enough of the yummy flatbread, and I met friends many times there for lunch. It was sad when O’Naturals closed in the Old Port, but we assumed the one in Falmouth would weather the recession.
The closing is a huge loss for the community and for those of us who are fans of healthy eating. It’s a sad statement of the times when such a good restaurant can’t remain open. I’m bereft.
