Mmm, Mmm, Dewey's
(a sneak peek)

Thursday night, my husband and I were invited to the soft opening of Dewey's newest location at the Harper Hills Commons Shopping center, at the corner of Country Club and Peacehaven. (Being a Facebook Fan of Dewey's has its privileges, become a fan and you can learn about special promotions!)

We walked into the event and were greeted by Brooke Smith, who is charge of Dewey's Marketing. She told us that everything edible and drinkable was FREE, and to make sure that we get in line to order so that their staff could practice getting up to speed on taking and executing orders. They also had staff members with trays walking around giving out samples of items such as spinach and cheese quiche, lemon bars, brownies, and my personal favorite, the Moravian Spice Cookie Latte. This was truly a Dewey's fantasy come true.

There were a few new items in the display case, including Cinnamon Rolls with a vanilla icing. There were two sizes, regular and "mini" and they looked amazing. A child at the next table had a mini cinnamon roll and the look on his face was sheer joy. I should have taken more pictures so that I could remember the names of the new items, but this forces you to go check it out for yourself.

We had the choice of coffee, espresso, and blended drinks; Joe and I each ordered a smoothie, which were about 20oz. I had the mango/pineapple and he had the strawberry banana. He added an energy suppliment and I ordered a metabolism boost. The combination of mango and pineapple was a little too sweet for my taste, but was fabulous when mixed with Joe's. The combo smoothie was also very aesthetically pleasing.

There are comfortable chairs inside, as well as small tables. Outside, there are tables for 2-4 people with Dewey's umbrellas above. The rain took a break and it was a perfect for a fall evening for sitting outside. Free WiFi will be available.

They also give us free sugarcake when we left. (Which my office enjoyed this morning.)

The new Dewey's will open for business on Monday, September 21st. Hours are 6:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. Monday – Saturday and 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Sundays.
