All things new

I linked into a new Kodiak blogger thanks to Ish at the KoKon. Its called the Devils Club advocate and its worth a read over.
The advocates latest post discusses the the ways things used to be on our island, nostalgic and historic.
It got me to thinking about all the cool new things around here, lately.
Oh sure we all are waiting for the fiesta le grande when Dan's new joint opens, but how about Gwen's place?
Also there is a great new place out here in the Flats. It's called Java Flats and it is this ratters new fave. They open at 530 in the mourning, serve excellent coffee and homemade breakfast burritos, and bagels with hand blended/flavored cream cheese. They also offer an eclectic lunch menu filled with amazing salads combining fruit, nuts, and veggies. They also offer up some pretty tasty sandwiches, shakes, and smoothies to boot. Check them out, just past the mini AC and just before the Rondy.
We have a new boat in town which means more customers, more tenants, and more talent for our various groups in the community. We are also now an official Coast Guard City; not really sure what that means, but I do know there is only a few in the nation.
Lastly, did you see the Clarkster step up to the plate with his huge front page article? Excellent story Derek, keep up the good work.
So some change is good,maybe on that note we will see some positive changes on the assembly this fall; but I digress...........................

There was a similar place in the same building as Java Flats a few years ago that sounds like they had a similar menu. I used to love going there. Penny the Packer Backer fan bovudqause to work there. Gal was a hoot. I haven't seen much of Penny in the last few years.

I've heard good things about the coffee out there, and can't wait to try out the lunches.

Thanks for the mention :). This was originally the Fairwind Cafe? Now I want a cinnamon roll and a nice double-shot white chocolate mocha.

Yup; it is in the same location as the old Fairwinds. Different crew, different venue, every bit as good, if not better.

See you there!

For years, the only coffee joint in my little borough has been Starbucks (or perhaps Starsucks would be more accurate what with their burnt bitter grounds). But a month ago, Jenkintown Java opened. They serve the best local coffee (La Colombe), have local ice cream (Bassett's) and the owners are the friendliest folks around. Simply put, miracles really do happen!
