First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

New soup and salad eatery, Nonna’s Kitchen, celebrated its grand opening yesterday with owner/chef Norma Thomson saying business has really taken off at the Bermudiana Road location.

She said her homemade offerings including chilli, beef stew, soups and cornbread were selling out.

“Business is doing really well,” Ms Thomson said. “The concept has been very well received in the area and people like the idea of sitting outside.”

She said she is getting business from tourists as well as locals, and in fact, one tourist from Boston praised the concept.

She has hired one other full-time staff member and now expects to hire a part-time person as well. She also hopes to get her liquor licence to serve beer and wine.

“I think it is proof of confidence in the economy that people are here buying lunch on a daily basis,” she said.

Ms Thomson took over part of the former O Bar space on Bermudiana Road for Nonna’s and was able to buy much of the furnishings and equipment in liquidation.

Nonna’s opens at 7am for breakfast and serves lunch from 11am through 2.30pm. In future it may open later.
