Amelia's Deli closes its downtown restaurant

Search on for new tenants at Amelia's, also Domus on Main Street

by Jeb Bing

Amelia's Deli, a popular downtown daytime restaurant at 55 W. Angela St., has closed after the number of patrons slackened due to weak economic conditions.

The restaurant, in business since 1990, attracted a larger crowd at its original location in the Gateway Shopping Center on Hopyard Road before it moved to the downtown location several years ago. Its owner said she may seek to return to a similar location on Hopyard, where her restaurant served many during the lunch hour from Hacienda Business Park companies.

An Amelia's customer said she was told the restaurant was being closed due to a dwindling number of diners and also because of high downtown rents.

Domus, another nearby downtown business, also is closing once its current inventory is sold out.

Both the Pleasanton Downtown Association and the city's Economic Development Department are seeking new tenants for both facilities.
