Stonyfield Yogurt to Open Huge Cafe at Chelsea Piers
CHELSEA — Chelsea Piers is about to go a bit yo-yo.
Popular organic yogurt maker Stonyfield Farms just sealed a deal to open a 3,800 square foot cafe in the spring.
The deal had been in the works for several months, and is part of the Maine-based Stonyfield Cafe's expansion into the neighborhood — they've recently been offering catering services in Chelsea.
The cafe — the company's first in New York — will also have a private event space on the second floor.
The restaurant will be located in the northwestern chunk of Chelsea Piers, facing the Hudson River. It will serve a variety of healthy, organic foods including flatbread pizzas, salads, and all-natural birthday cakes.
Of course, for the dessert-inclined, they'll also sell Stonyfield yogurts as well, along with frozen yogurts, parfaits, and smoothies at a walk-up dairy bar.
The goal, it seems, is to attract the sort of wellness-minded folks that frequent Chelsea Pier's gyms and sports facilities.
“A healthy setting like Chelsea Piers is the ideal place to open the first Stonyfield Café in New York City,” said Stonyfield CEO Gary Hirshberg in a statement.
