Why do you love where you live? I love living in West Delray for many reasons but my absolute favorite part is that many of the neighborhoods here are filled with tons of young families. There is something special and nostalgic about my kids coming home from school and playing in the street with their “neighborhood” friends. I also love that there’s an abundance of amazing restaurants just minutes away as well as so much new construction, bringing even more fabulousness to West Delray.
What is your favorite neighborhood restaurant? Wood & Fire! Who doesn’t love pizza?! You can’t go wrong with any of their mouth-watering pizzas, or my favorite, the Wood Fired Eggplant Parmigiana! In addition to the extensive menu and great food, the service is spot on. Be sure to grab a table on their outdoor patio!
Favorite place to meet friends? Carmela Coffee Bar is the BEST! The coffee is awesome and their many different kinds of avocado toast are all insane! Additionally, the super cool ambience and chill vibe make this a perfect spot for meeting friends!
Favorite place to grab coffee? I run on Dunkin’! As an on-the-go mom, I’m usually rushing to get my kids to and from school, practices and games. Therefore, I conveniently place my order ahead of time at any one of the Dunkin Donuts in West Delray, and pickup a coffee to go!
Favorite specialty store? The Girls Strawberry Patch! If you haven’t been, you’re missing out! Inside is an old-fashioned ice cream parlor with the most delicious homemade ice cream as well as every single candy bar you can think of! Outside has a beautiful garden with all different types of birds as well as a petting zoo. There is gem mining, a duck derby and the obvious, strawberry picking. A place for all ages and the most perfect weekend activity!
You know you’re a local if…You find yourself walking around Delray Marketplace and stopping at Burt & Max’s for their onion soup dumplings, and a drink at the bar! Oh and before you leave the shopping center, you must grab a bag of chocolate covered Swedish fish from IT’SUGAR, obviously.
