Longtime staples Stratton’s Café, Laurie’s Place close doors

Wednesday, December 27th, 2017



Stratton’s Café at 8103 Big Bend Blvd. in Webster Groves, is closing its doors this week. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Dec. 26, the owners announced the last day of service will be Friday, Dec. 29.

“We’ve been here 15 years, and it’s been a great run,” said owner Ben Stratton. “We’ve had the pleasure of serving the people of Webster Groves for 15 years, and we’d like to thank them for allowing us to serve them that long.”

Stratton cited increased competition in the area from new restaurants like The Clover & The Bee and Half & Half as one reason for the closure. “Obviously, it’s always sad when you close a restaurant, but it’s just time,” he said.

Meanwhile, as reported by The Edwardsville Intelligencer, Laurie’s Place at 228 N. Main St. in Edwardsville will shutter on Monday, Jan. 1, after 21 years in business. The announcement was first posted on Facebook on Saturday, Dec. 9. Owner Laurie Chavez was not immediately available for comment.
