The buzz at 154 Main Road, Walmer, Port Elizabeth.

The buzz at 154 Main Road, Walmer, Port Elizabeth.

Some more rearranging of the furniture in Walmer has brought with it a ‘buzz’. We’ve been watching the changing space at No. 154 Main Road, Walmer, barely 2kms from us Dempsey’s Guest House. If we remember correctly, it all started years ago with the opening of The Scrapbook Nook and then Execu Cut. Alongside them was Casa Rosa Florist and then up popped Pro Natural and quite soon thereafter Micoffee. ProNatural and Casa Rosa have moved over to the new wing and Mike and his Micoffee are now stationed up front near the road, a coffee ‘drive through’ we believe. Go Mike! The 2 Fat Butchers have left our immediate neighbourhood and are now trading next to the new Banneton Bakery and Cafe. And behind but not last, Cupboard Love has moved from their Richmond Hill premises. We popped in the other day to take some photos. We will wait awhile until ‘the dust has settled’ before we take some more photos and bring you some more news and information on the businesses in operation there.
