Goodbye Cafe Demeter

Goodbye Cafe Demeter – Marilyn O’Conner photo

Marilyn O’Conner shares this photo of Jordyn Magnuson (left) and Alex Hayes (right), two of the crew on either side of Pam Stewart, owner of Cafe Demeter, as they hang the “closed” sign on Christmas Eve.  

The bakery is closing permanently.  It has been a beloved community gathering place for many years, not just for the excellent pastries and coffee, but also for the warm welcome provided to locals and visitors alike.  They will be greatly missed!

  1. For me personally, this is a devastating loss. It was as close to a hang out in town as I have had. As the article said, fine pastries, very good coffee, and a friendly place to be. Alex and Jordyn were excellent at remembering people and the things they liked. Pam was always helpful at filling special orders. This is a loss to the community – a thriving business, which provided employment to islanders and provided a friendly place to gather.
    It will be a long time before this combination of characteristics will be found again. This closure, along with that of the Bistro, run by Richard and Sherri make the winter days just a bit darker.
