The Smelly Gourmet is Rated #1 Place to Eat on TripAdvisor.

Smelly Himself

Stop in and savor one of Steve's famous cappuccino's!  He'll tell you that he makes the best cappuccino this side of the Atlantic Ocean.  Steve lived in various areas of Italy for 7 years.  While living in Napoli (Naples) Italy, he learned his barista skills from the best, "Tonino" the owner of the "Delfino Verde" Trattoria (Green Dolphin). Since leaving Italy he has always wanted to educate Americans on the true taste of a European Coffee.

If you experienced one of Smelly’s famous panini you know he can cook.  Unfortunately we had to make the hard decision to discontinue the panini sandwiches.  Because Smelly made everything from scratch he had no free time to spend with family and friends.   Now Smelly will cook some of his outstanding food when he wants to and on Holidays and special events. What he will make is unsure, it just comes to him but it will be creative and Gourmet. He just loves to cook and share it with his customers.  If you know Smelly he can't do average, he has to go above and beyond.

Enjoy hanging out at the Smelly Gourmet.  Roam around our shop and see the many gift items we make. Pull up a chair inside or out on our deck or courtyard.  Relax and enjoy the sounds of our waterfall and the flower gardens.  You’re probably going to see a hummingbird or two.

Many weekends we have live music on the deck. 

During Christmas Walk we serve Smelly's pulled pork sandwiches with homemade chips and his homemade soups which includes his famous Loaded Potato and award winning Chili served with his homemade crusty bread.
