There’s nothing I love more than a business owner who is super passionate about his business. In fact, the only thing more exciting about an owner who loves their business is a welcoming owner.
Today, I met LEE the owner of Benjamin’s Bakery & Cafe. Lee’s business is 4 businesses in one and he’s cranking out the pastries, bread, coffee, and bagels.
For those of you headed to Myrtle Beach South Carolina, Benjamin’s Bakery And Cafe is not to be missed. Find this incredible cafe on the Surfside Beach Area.
Best Bakery and Cafe in Surfside Beach, South Carolina
I Met Lee
I gotta tell you, this business owner, is so friendly and welcoming. There’s nothing being created in his Bakery & Cafe that is made in there that he does not know the recipe.
Lee, in fact, needed himself a bit more of a challenge and started roasting his own coffee beans.
For me, it is a cute place to sit and eat a fast breakfast, in a more quaint setting. In the same place, you are eating, there’s a flipside.
The back area hones in on creating freshly made bread, donuts, and more.
Watching the rolls being made, was hard because it smelled so good, I wanted to OPEN the doors and grab a fresh-baked roll.
You know I am a healthy eater, so I ordered a sesame toasted bagel with an avocado smear on it. Best ever. There’s a great crunch to his bagels (toasted) and the perfect way to top a bagel was with avocado.
I, however, sauntered to the front, and get a biscotti too. Hello, delish is all I can say.
You gotta see how much he has going on here. In the back of the cafe, is a full-service retail bakery. Here he produces just what is ordered, keeping waste to a minimum. (LOVe this!!)
What captured my heart is the fact that LEE makes doggie biscuits too and they go to a farmers’ market and sell out week after week.
Personally, simple was great. Delicious was delivered by a bagel and his sweet tea is yummy. You just want to keep sucking it up through PAPER Straws.
Bring your kids, your wife, your friends and grab a great breakfast sandwich, a box of donuts, or cookies, and fresh bread for all that seafood you will cook while on vacation
I have ONE favor to ask. If you meet Lee give him a hug, he’s the sweetest man ever DANA ~ XO
