Yarmouth's Mini-Boom Continues With Hilltop Coffee Expansion, Grocery Store

This could distract from the looming pizza wars.

On the heels of the recent announcement that OTTO is planning to take a slice of Yarmouth's pizza market, Urban Eye reports that the pizzeria's new home at renovated Andy's Handy Store will also house a cafe from Guy and Stella Hernandez (owners of Munjoy Hill's Hilltop Coffee and Lolita) as well as a grocery store.

As to whether the new Andy's Handy Store will compete with a nearby outpost of Rosemont Market, Andy's new owner Sean Ireland told Urban Eye, "They do what they do well, they are a specialty shop. We are casting the net wider," with items like toilet paper and pantry staples. Ireland's cousin Amy will run the grocery store; Urban Eye predicts a June opening for the collective.
