Boise Marie Callendar's to close its doors


A staple of the Boise dining scene is closing up shop.

Marie Callendar's Restaurant and Bakery will shut down after dinner this Friday January 26th, an employee confirms.

The Fairview Ave. restaurant has been serving pie and comfort food for decades, with a focus on holiday deserts. It is the only Idaho location and will not reopen. Employees were told the restaurant lost its lease.
