For those of you wanting to “eat fresh” in Pier Park, now you can. Subway opened today, in place of a highly troubled Sheesha Cafe in what would have been a loud outbreak of applause, had it all happened in front of a live studio audience.
Some of you may recognize Subway as that good ‘ol sub shop that was made infamous with Jared Fogle in the 90’s touting some really huge pants as a garment that previously was “his size.” I’ll forever remember subway as one of those great lunch places in which I can get a $5 sub in midst of great company.
So, where was this place called Sheesha Cafe that now holds the warm aroma of fresh bread and cold cuts? Easy. Right next to Starbucks, across from the Grand, around the corner from Marble Slab, in the promo area and next to what may soon be confirmed as the first Schlotzsky’s on the beach.
