Businesses in Cambridge ask city officials to consider expanding outdoor seating

CAMBRIDGE, Md. – In Cambridge, some businesses like the Black Water Bakery in Downtown Cambridge say being able to provide outdoor seating has been a good start for them as the state reopens.

The owner of Black Water Bakery Jamie Summers says they are now offering outdoor seating, which was permitted by the state on Friday.

She says she has four tables, but because of social distancing, she can only offer outdoor dining for up to eight customers.

She says although business isn’t fully operational yet she’s grateful for these new changes.

“You do what you do and it’s ok, I mean I can’t say there’s a line out the door, but it’s okay, it’s a start,” said Summers.

“It’s something, we’re able to do something,” said Summers.

According to Summers, there are several businesses in Cambridge that are asking city council members to consider expanding outdoor seating for more tables in order to help all restaurants be able to serve people food.
