I can’t find a spot to put this on the original review (ca 1999) for the Goody Goody Diner, but disaster struck there in April. The business had been sold in 2014 to new owners who swore they were going to keep things just the same. And they pretty much did They owned other businesses in the area, and had every reason to continue the happy results. Unfortunately April 23, 2019, there was a fire after they closed for the night. It was really bad. Despite early reports that it would soon be back in business, it has not reopened, and the building is boarded up. Our city’s loss. A place pretty much unlike any other in STL, not so much the menu as the atmosphere and the customers. If I know more I’ll pass it on, but things are pretty grim right now.
