A cafe that was staffed and run by people with disabilities has closed its doors after a year in business.
According to one of our sources, Power Cafe in Watertown is no longer in operation, with a Facebook post from the Lexington Street spot indicating that it shut down last month, saying that "After much deliberation, we regretfully decided to remain closed indefinitely, due to personal reasons. We wish to thank our customers, partners, and the wider community for all your support over the past year." Power Cafe first opened last November, bringing to Watertown an eatery that was operated by people with physical and/or developmental disabilities; the cafe offered such items as salads, sandwiches, breads, cookies, muffins, coffee, tea, and more.
The address for the now-closed Power Cafe was 45 Lexington Street, Watertown, MA, 02472.
