In Fells Point, a sign at 726 S. Broadway announces, "Coming Soon. JAVA-ROO Kickin’ Coffee & Fell’s Fabulous Homemade Fudge featuring the world’s best custom mochas." It sounds like a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
This news comes courtesy of fabulous fact checker Amy M, who was sidetracked on her way to the now open Mr. Yogato. The fudgery will be next to the store Poppy and Stella, not too far from the Greene Turtle.
There is so much going on in Fells Point these days. Zoning notices are everywhere. I saw one on Miss Irene’s to add outdoor seating while I was heading to Bonaparte Breads on S. Ann St.
While I was waiting to order an iced tea at Bonaparte, I was fascinated by a couple in front of me. They were oohing and aahing at the pretty desserts (which are delicious looking if you haven't been in a while) like they’ve never seen anything quite like them.
One of their companions felt the need to explain: They’re from St. Martin (in the Caribbean) and don’t have anything there like this, he said. They seemed to enjoy their coffees and croissants. It's a reminder not to take our bakeries and restaurants for granted.
