The Granola Bar originated in Westport, CT starting in 2015. It is a relatively new place to dine, and has recently opened a location in Greenwich, CT and will be opening two more stores in Rye, NY and Stamford, CT by the end of summer 2017.
Something cool about the granola bar is the earthy, modern vibe inside. The food is mostly healthy and organic, but all for a reasonable price. The menu is unique as it serves trendy names for each item. For example, the ‘crunchy elvis’ is a yogurt parfait with almond butter, honey, granola, and banana. “My favorite thing to get is the avocado toast because they offer a lot of a variety of toppings” says senior Riley Magrath
The Westport location has become extremely popular that during breakfast and lunch hours it could be hard to get a table. They also serve a quick pickup section, and espresso bar so that there are other places to sit. Due to the success of the Westport location, a very similar Greenwich location was opened.
In the spring, The Granola Bar will be opening a location in Harbor Point, down by the water. This location will be different from all the other ones because it is just pick up. “Harbor point is very far from my house, and since the new location will be just pick up I probably won’t go very often, however, I’m excited that a location will be opening in Stamford” says freshman Ryan Sklover.
