Why Omakase at Jimotti’s Should be Your Next Foodie Adventure

It’s been just over a year since Junichi Takazoe made a splash in the Sanford food scene by opening Jimotti’s Restaurant.

That’s why having omakase at Jimotti’s, made...

The District in Sanford – Deliciously Tasteful

One of the wonderful things about living and working Downtown is the anticipation that builds as a new business lays its roots in our little town.

Imagine my surprise when I walked into the new and adorable bakery, Dreamy Cakes to chat with owner Angel when lunch was served before me along with a delicious breakfast in bed cupcake, a cupcake that tasted like a pancake and had…bacon crumbles on top! Oh yum! Typically for me a croissant is only eaten at  holidays, so that lovely, buttery, flakey freshly made croissant was gobbled up in the most proper way I could possibly...
