Sadies Diner

Sadie's Diner set to close at the end of the month

Sadie's Diner is set to close its doors after almost a 9 year run at Adelaide and Portland. The brunch spot was much-loved by vegans and vegetarians alike, but owner Al Ridley is primed to retire at the end of the month and will not be passing the business on to a new owner.

"I am closing Sadie's Diner at the end of this month and retiring from the restaurant business," he writes on Facebook. "I've been thinking about it for a while for many different reasons but was holding on to try to renew the lease with the hopes that I could possibly find someone to take over but unfortunately that wasn't in the cards."

"One of the most challenging aspects of running this business for the past 8 plus years has been this old building and the landlords that own it and the fact that I wasn't able to work things out with them is the reason it will be closed and not sold or passed on to anyone else," he continues by way of explanation for the seemingly sudden closure.

Sadie's remained a popular spot throughout its almost nine year run, and you can bet that many will miss the gluten free pancakes and other fare. Sadie's will shut its doors on June 28th.
