Posh Bagel reopens in Menlo Park

Back and bigger than ever

Posh Bagel reopened on Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Menlo Park on Saturday, July 23, a little more than a year after a fire shut the shop down.

Of the three businesses destroyed by the fire on June 16, 2010, only Posh Bagel has returned. The Book Rack chose to shut down, as did Cafe Silan.

However, the bagel shop has a new neighbor in the Great Frame Up, which moved in on June 1.

Posh Bagel returns to 869 Santa Cruz Ave. bigger than ever, according to landlord Nancy Couperus, since it expanded into the space formerly occupied by the cafe.

"There seems to be a lot of interest on the street, so we're all very excited," Ms. Couperus said.

Inspectors from the Menlo Park Fire Protection District said an improperly installed flue at Cafe Silan triggered last year's blaze. There were no injuries and about $100,000 in property damage, most of it from water cascading down and behind the walls of the three stores, according to Chief Harold Schapelhouman.
