Diane Browne, who has run the cafe and Diane Browne Catering out of the kitchen at Good Food Good Things for the past 10 years, has purchased the building at 865 Post Road.

Browne plans to reorganize the business, cafe and shop under the name All Things Good. The store will reopen at the end of August after renovations.

"I am so excited about having a more permanent home in Darien," said Browne. "The town has been so good to me and so welcoming and the purchase of this building ensures that I will be able to continue to service both our cafe patrons and catering clients and also offer a cohesive experience in the store."

All Things Good will still offer gifts and specialty home goods, while taking full advantage of Browne's expertise by increasing the offerings.

Browne is bringing back Amy Sporrer as the buyer, so customers can expect to see many of the items that have made the store popular for the past decade.

The renovation will reconfigure the space to make it even more shopper friendly and maximize the storefront windows for passersby.

Many of the features of the cafe will remain the same, such as salads and sandwiches from DBC, desserts and baked goods from Lori Gilmore and soups from Trudy Rendon.

"I have known Diane Browne as a customer, friend and businesswoman and think that the purchase of the building is a savvy business move, and All Things Good will be a boon to our town," said Sandy Nielsen, of Nielsen's Florist & Garden Shop. "Diane is a bright light in our community and I wish her the best of luck in her new endeavor."

Diane Browne Catering has been serving clients in lower Fairfield County for more than 20 years.
