BELCHERTOWN — Leena’s Place marked its first anniversary on Jan. 8 and owner Jessica Morehouse reflected on the past year and expressed her excitement for year two.

“We have enjoyed meeting all the new faces, sharing laughs and great food during our first year. We have enjoyed navigating through every obstacle and hope to continue to be a supporter in the Belchertown community,” Morehouse added.

Leena’s Place is located at the Cold Spring Country Club, 330 Chauncey Walker St., and has added plenty of food and drink options for people in town along with a place to enjoy cultural experiences, cuisine and fun activities.

The restaurant also offers live music, dance classes and other events to have fun with the community.
Morehouse added, “Our mission is to continue to be a gem at the top of Cold Springs Country Club and bring the town together by being diverse. We have an absolute amazing view which we would love for people to view. We love when people gather with us from dinner to weddings, tournaments, birthday parties, gender reveals, breakfast and more. Our space is available to book a private event.”

Morehouse said she is looking forward to building off a successful year.

Leena’s Place just starting offering a $5 burger special every Wednesday and an outside igloo with twinkle lights and a heater for seating in the winter.

She said, “We have so many ideas and goals for the next few years and can’t wait to share them with our loyal and new customers. We now offer a pool table and jukebox for people to come to enjoy. We are now doing more hands-on events such as mixology classes, sip and paint, sushi making, line dancing and much more.”

Since opening, Leena’s Place now also offers Door Dash and Toast delivery services.

The restaurant also offers breakfast on a daily basis with Saturday and Sunday being open as early as 8 a.m.

“We hope to continue to expand breakfast hours early during the week,” Morehouse added.

Morehouse said that her dream of owning a restaurant since she was a kid has come true and that business has been strong since it opened.

“We appreciate all the relationships we have made with local vendor’s, businesses, bands and customers; we wouldn’t be able to do it with you,” she said.

Morehouse added, “We understand the economy is difficult which is why we hope you will take the time to support a small local business so that we can continue to strive to be successful. We can’t do it without you.”

She noted that those who mention this article in The Reminder would receive 10% off their dine-in meal.
