New eating options pop up around Beaufort

New dining options are available in the Beaufort area with the opening of several restaurants and shops in the recent weeks.

Among them are:

  • A new boutique bakery that is serving up sweets. Crave CupCake opened Sept. 17. Passersby should notice the small, bright purple building at 1103 Boundary St., Beaufort, or the rainbow-colored, cupcake-theme car parked out front.
  • Owned by Tamecka Petty and Charles Francis, the bakery offers more than 50 flavors of cupcakes, according to the shop's Facebook page. Flavor names range from Apple Annie, Thin Mint and My Fair Berry to the more fanciful Go Tigers, Leapin Lizard and Lavern & Shirley. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

  • Val's Heavenly Wings and Seafood originally was to open earlier this summer. It celebrated its grand opening Sept. 1 in the Beaufort Plaza Shopping Center near the intersection of Robert Smalls Parkway and Boundary Street. Happy's used to occupy the space at 7 Robert Smalls Parkway, Suite 1.
  • The restaurant has 14 varieties of buffalo wings. Other items include fish and shrimp with fries, chicken fingers, Nathan's hot dogs, hamburgers, angel eggs and ice cream. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.

  • Sandwich shop chain Jimmy John's is opened its first Beaufort-area store on Boundary Street in Beaufort Town Center, in the former site of Rita's.
  • The restaurant offers cold subs and club sandwiches ranging from $5 to $8, and accepts online orders for pick up or delivery. It also offers day-old loaves of French bread for 50 cents. Hours of the 2015 Boundary St., Suite 103, business are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.

  • There's even something new for animals. The G&G Feed and Seed opened at 3 Broad River Road, Burton, in August. Owner Gene Kirkland has been in the feed-and-seed business for more than 30 years and owns a mill in Bamberg.
  • The store has feed for dogs, cats, horses, goats, deer and pigs, as well as fertilizer, horse equipment and veterinary supplies.

    "We've got a little bit of everything," manager Hazel Pender said.

    Before changing owners, the store was the Burton Feed and Seed. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week.
