Yet Another One Bites The Dust

From a NATOMAS BUZZ reader:

“Daphne’s is closed. We were at Jack’s for dinner and noticed all the lights were off and there’s a big corporate “CLOSED” sign in the window.”

Thanks for the tip, T.C.!


  1. Yay for Jacks. Boo for Daphne’s.

  2. This is really too bad. They were one of the first restaurants in that center, and their food was consistently good. Unfortunately I never saw more than a few people inside and I’ve wondered how they stayed in business this long.

  3. I could see this one coming. When my wife and I first moved in it was packed but then whenever we would go back it there was hardly anyone there. I think it had something to do with how expensive the food was. Don’t get me wrong, the food was excellent but the price was a bit high. I remember seeing people walk into Daphnes, take one look at the menu and the price, and then walk out. That would be a good location for a Starbucks.

  4. Very sad. I’m still mourning the loss of Pita Pita (Mediterranean) — they introduced my wife and me to another range of cuisine that we have continued to explore and enjoy.

    This is a tough time for restaurants in Natomas. Let’s try to make a point of supporting them as much as we can during this difficult time.

  5. I hear you Keith but the catch-22 is that most families are pulling back and eating at home. As much as I would love to support these businesses, I’m just trying to get by myself. Still, everytime I walk into Panera or whatever, I get something….

  6. Hey, is Tretheway taking credit for Daphne’s closing?

    On the bright side, it’s too small for a Goodwill. Unfortunately that’s the only bright side. Total bummer.


  7. It is nice to see we still have our sense of humor. These days that’s hard to come by.

    I will miss Daphne’s. I’d forgotten about them for awhile but recently visited them several times. I’m glad I did.


  8. I know… Easier said than done at times… :-(

  9. If the sheer volume of people out shopping on Furlough Friday is any indication, there are many many people in our community who are not hurting as badly as it seems. I was running errands and Target, Kohls, Jacks, Marshalls and Ross were jam packed. Good to see people shopping in Natomas!

  10. I haven’t gone out to eat in months. I can’t fault anyone for not supporting local restaurants in this economy. It’s brutal out there.

  11. Daphne’s is closed?! Bummer. I agree with the person that said the prices were too high. Yeah, Jack’s isn’t cheap either but their food is more broad based, with a specialty food like Daphne’s I think you need to lower prices to have returning customers. *Cough* Looks at Chaat Cafe *Cough*

    I did try to support Daphne’s, but I couldn’t support it regularly because of its prices.

    To the person on furloughed workers shopping, well, those are the cheap stores-Targets, Marshalls, etc, I would be highly suprised that furloughed workers would be packing Bella Bru and Macy’s.
