The Wild Rabbit Café, a popular restaurant on Main Street in Gloucester village, is now under new ownership.

Ana Ferreira bought the business Dec. 1 from Eric Weisel. Both are Gloucester residents.

Ferreira is no stranger to the restaurant, having worked there for more than five years, most recently as manager.

Ferreira said she plans to retain some of the restaurant’s sandwiches, soups, salads and casual offerings such as rich desserts and smoothies. Among the most popular items are the specialty house salad, zucchini bread and quiche.
