Noontide Coffee + Kitchen just opened their doors to serve breakfast and lunch on the corner of Friendly Road and Highway 70 (across the railroad tracks from The Friendly Market). Owners Kim and Eric Reid (who also own Scoopin' Yummies in Atlantic Beach) whip up sandwiches, salads, bowls, coffee, smoothies and more – all with quality ingredients (and we can attest that it is delicious!). Some of our team's favorite Noontide dishes? The Avocado Bruschetta Toast, the Noonish Salad and the Caprese Sandwich...just to name a few!
