Sweet Peach Diner Is Moving into Former Andros Diner Space in Belmont
A new diner is coming to the western suburbs of Boston, and it will be moving into the spot where another diner had been for more than 30 years. A sign posted on the storefront of the old Andros Diner space indicates that the Sweet Peach Diner is going to be taking over the Trapelo Road spot that is near the Waltham border. A check on their website and Facebook page shows that the new eatery will be open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday through Sunday, with classic diner items such as burgers, hot dogs, and seafood offered, along with Southern-style fare and barbeque. The Sweet Peach Diner had been hoping to open this Wednesday (June 13), but a permit delay is pushing back their opening for a few days.
[June 26 update: According to their Facebook page, the Sweet Peach Diner has had more delays with their opening, as the place has "hit some snags with the permits but are doing what we can to get it all sorted out." More information will be coming from the restaurant next week; as soon as we hear anything, we will post another update here.]
[July 18 update: According to their Facebook page, the Sweet Peach Diner is now open.]
The Andros Diner closed last spring due to financial issues (including owing taxes and utility costs to the town of Belmont). It had been seized by the state in the summer of 2010 as well, but quickly reopened.
The address for the Sweet Peach Diner is: Sweet Peach Diner, 628 Trapelo Road (Route 60), Belmont, MA, 02478. Their website can be found at http://www.thesweetpeachdiner.com/
