GREENWICH, Conn. — As the popular Granola Bar of Westport nears its second anniversary, the owners are announcing plans to expand.
Soon diners in Greenwich will be able to enjoy the healthy options and build-your-own meals offered at the Granola Bar.
"We can't bear to keep it a secret any longer! We are SO, SO, SO incredibly thrilled to announce that The Granola Bar will be opening our second location in *drum roll please* GREENWICH," they said in a Facebook post.
The new location of the Granola Bar will open "within the next few months over the winter," the post said. The restaurant will be located right at the top of the Avenue at 41 Greenwich Ave.
The Granola Bar serves breakfast and lunch, with healthy smoothies, egg dishes, sandwiches and salads among the popular fare. Diners can customize many of the offerings, and kids have their own menu choices.
And it's a great spot to stop for just coffee, tea or dessert as well.
Julie Levitt of Weston and Dana Noorily of Westport opened the first Granola Bar in Westport in December 2013.
"At the time we were two mothers who just wanted a healthy place to eat and have good coffee," said Levitt.
Neither has a background in restaurants — Levitt was in the music business, Noorily in finance.
What is the key to their success? "The real magic is in the partnership," said Levitt. "We have each other's back."
The restaurant is family-friendly with a focus on seasonal ingredients from local farms.
The Granola Bar is located in Playhouse Square at 275 Post Road East in Westport, call 203-349-5202 for information.
