Sweet Peach Diner in Belmont Is Closing
It looks like a diner in the western suburbs of Boston is getting ready to close its doors for good.
According to multiple sources (including a Facebook friend, an emailer, and a poster on the Chowhound site), the Sweet Peach Diner in Belmont is apparently shutting down, with its last day in business possibly being sometime next weekend. (The diner was closed for the day by the time this news was received--and it is closed on Mondays--so no one could be reached there.) This comes only a few months after a proposed sale of the Trapelo Road eatery fell through, according to an earlier article in the Belmontonian, which said that the Sweet Peach was planning to be purchased by Dennis Dyer of the New Yorker Diner in Watertown, only to have it return to the original owner in the hopes that it might be purchased by someone else.
[April 30 update: The Belmont Citizen-Herald states that the Sweet Peach Diner will close for good on Sunday, May 3.]
The Sweet Peach Diner first opened in July of 2012, offering classic diner fare along with Southern-style dishes. It took over the space where Andros Diner had been for more than 30 years. (One of the persons involved with Andros now runs another My Other Kitchen on nearby Pleasant Street.)
The address for the Sweet Peach Diner is 628 Trapelo Road (Route 60), Belmont, MA, 02478.
