New Cafe Coming to Flatbush Avenue

Looks like PLG is getting a new eatery: Cafe Pomidor, headquartered at 721 Flushing Avenue in Brooklyn, has hung its sign on a commercial space on the corner of Flatbush and Midwood.

According to the sign, the "casual fast food eatery" will offer "a variety of healthy soups, wraps, sandwiches, and a salad bar with an abundant selection of fresh vegetables."

Apparently, owners of the company are planning to build it into a chain of "organic sandwich, salad bar cafe eateries." A blurb I found online mentions "soups, hand-crafted muffins, and variety of other pastries which are baked fresh daily." The blurb has an aspirational ring to it, though, and the web site isn't up, so who knows. 

(Thanks, Mindy!)




Best of luck to them! I'll try it!


I suppose one wishes them well and yet... the blurb pretty clearly implies the existence of a chain of stores ("Cafe Pomidor Group operates organic sandwich, salad bar cafe eateries under the Cafe Pomidor brand name. Headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, each location ... Many of the cafes ... etc.)" which is fiction. There may or may not be "approximately 360" of them by 2015, but at the moment there appear to be exactly none.


Everyone has to start somewhere, I suppose, but 360 restaurants in 4 years, with $600 million in revenues? Love to know more about their investors/business model!


I hope they cook better than they spell. Check how they wrote sandwich on their sign.

I wish them luck, and am very pleased that they are investing here but wonder if this isn't more appropriate for a business lunch crowd.


I'm glad they are opening here, I truly look forward to trying their food.


Cafe Pomidor, this sound interesting cant wait for something new in the neighborhood, tired of the same ole. I wonder if they will be having free food when they have their Grand Opening.


We'll try them for sure and if they're good will return often. Regarding possibly being most appropriate for a business crowd as one person commented, there are a lot of work-at-home people in PLG (me and nearly all our neighbors included) who will appreciate having a good new quick takeout place.
