IMG_3770

Hi there. Here I was this past week-end when the weather was glorious.  It is what I love the most. Playing on the beach with my family.  Well, there is another thing I like to do just as much and that is eating.  I am Sophia and I am a new foodie in town.  Looking for places that kids are welcomed and not rushed.  It is the beach, afterall, you should come here to relax and chill out.

Half Full is the restaurant that we went to eat the other night.  It is in Lewes, Delaware, located at 125 Second St.  Tel. 302-645-8877.  It is open from Sunday through Thursday from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m.and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. until 11 p.m.    Website?  http://www.halffulllewes.com.

My Grammy and my Mom were there too.  Half Full is celebrating their first year in this location.  I guess it is about my age.  I just took my first steps and this is a milestone.  I am growing up.  Everyone has been laughing and clapping at my way of walking.  I will master it and then they will be sorry because I will be all over the place.

At Half Full you order at the counter and then they will bring you the food at the table.  Our table, and this is a tip from me to you, was inside.

It was a corner booth.  It is perfect for little ones like me.  You can also eat outside on their porch but my Mom thinks this is the best one.  There is also a high table that I have sat before.  Yes, I do get around.

Some of you might think I should be home in bed but to tell you the truth it was not late and I also took a late afternoon nap.  So I was ready for some tasting.

The first thing we ordered was the Cold Board.

It is a composed salad of two cheeses, sopressata, roasted red pepper and tomato, Kalamata olives, which I so love, and garlic sauce.  I am not into the garlic sauce but I love everything else.  You can tell by the photos by Grammy took.

Two pizzas were ordered.  These pizzas are thin and crispy.  They are sooooo good.  You are going to love them and so will your children.

In the background the pizza was Have It Your Way….you customize it.  Tomato sauce, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes and Kalamata Olives. That was my Mom’s.

In the foreground my Grammy’s was The Lobster & The Leek…Canadian lobster, creamy leek confit, cognac tomato sauce.  My Grammy said she had forgotten how good these pizzas were.  I totally agree with her.  They were yummy!!

It was an early evening in Lewes.  The town was quiet.  Stay tuned for my next post.

Night Night!!

I am Miss Sophia.  Most of the time my favorite past time is playing on the beach.  I am very new to this.  I am only 15 months old.  I am a fast learner.  Besides doing all those things babies do, I have become quite a foodie.  I like most everything.  I try it once and if I put a funny face my Mom usually knows that I am not too comfortable with such a unique taste.  One thing I love is ice cream, watermelon, and cherry tomatoes.

I love Italian food so we took off to Nicola Pizza.  They tell me that since 1971 it has been a favorite of residents and visitors alike.  It has 2 locations:  the original located at 8 N 1st Street and the second on 71 Rehoboth Avenue.  The second one is practically around the corner.  Tel. 302-227-6211.  Website http://www.nicolapizza.com.

My Mom and my 2 grandmas were with me at the original location.  Nicola Pizza is very kid friendly.  No rush, stay as long as you want.

We ordered French Fries!  Sprinkling them with a little Apple Cider Vinegar is always good, but I just put ketchup on mine.  My Grammy calls this type of food Boardwalk Grub!  Not sure what she means, but I think I will be learning more and more about these favorites of all that come to the beach.  I forgot to tell you that it seems they all like their fries well done!

Nicola Pizza is known for their Nic-o-Boli.  The original has ground beef and you can add all kinds of other goodies like, onions, cheese, sweet peppers, mushrooms and the list goes on.  They have a vegeterian ones, as well.  These Nic-o-Bolis can be also bought by the dozen.  Nicola Pizza also ships.

This is what the Nic-o-Boli looks like. Inside, it is hot and full of meat, cheese and sauce.

My Grammy wanted to have it but did not want to eat all the dough.  She says summer is coming.  I want to tell her summer is here!!  Anyway, they have what they call a Nic-o-Boli in a bowl.  She added sweet peppes, and mushrooms.

She loved it.  Guilt free she said.

Mama Nicola (Joan Caggiano) was making the rounds.  She always stops at each table to see if her customers are satisfied.  When she came to my table she decided to take a seat and watch me eat my spaghetti which by the way, I loved.  I slurperd those noodles right up and loved the meatballs, as well.

Mama Nicola was so nice.  She just watch me eat and have a good time.

From here we were off to the rides at Funland, also in Downtown Rehoboth Beach!!

I’ll be passing the word around as I see kid friendly places, here at the Delaware Beaches.  Night Night!!
