I was invited to attend the Friends & Family soft opening last night at Cafe 66 in their new location at 685 US HWY 1, previously known as Smokehouse BBQ Grill which unfortunately closed their doors recently. Owners, Dan and Lacy Cox have experienced explosive growth at their previous location at Oslo and 66th Ave, so they’ve been on the lookout for a larger location to accommodate their needs. Their new location had just become available and seemed like a perfect fit. Since their menu is similar to the previous tenant, they could have simply signed papers and opened the next day, but they decided delay the opening for a few weeks to give the place a face lift and add their own personal touches to make it their own.
Check out the video below for my experience at the soft opening!
Here are a few photos from the soft opening!
