Some new things around town
We have two new coffee shops on the verge of opening in the Grove. A Nespresso place is almost ready to open on Fuller Street, where the Design Bar home store was, Design Bar moved to the end of Commodore Plaza. Also, The Blonde Tulip flower shop has been working on a small coffee and pastry shop inside the flower shop. It's been in the works for awhile. No opening date set.
Noel, who owns the tattoo and piercing shops is now opening the "new" Yucky's. As you know the original Yucky's on Main Highway closed after being an institution for so many years. Noel bought the Yucky's name and is transforming the place into an "upscale smoke shop," in his words. Noel's got his own little red light district right here in Coconut Grove.
I stopped by yesterday, they are still in the painting and transforming phase, but it will be new from the ground up. Yucky's is quite well known in hippie circles and many tourists ask for it when in town.
