Shipyard Cafe celebrates one year

ADVERTISEMENT

The Shipyard Cafe at Derecktor’s Shipyard just south of Ft. Lauderdale celebrated its first anniversary with a half-price barbecue on March 12. Crew from around the yard as well as business people from the surrounding community feasted on the tasty chicken and ribs. The popular lunch spot doubles as a meeting place, bringing yacht crew and contractors together to meet and talk in a casual setting. That was an unintended but nice benefit, said Sam Frusterio, owner of Dart Canvas who also started the cafe with yacht Chef Bill Fahey.


In the past year, the yard has added some amenities to keep the place cozy, and this year plans to add eisenglass panels and air conditioning, said James Brewer, director of sales and marketing for the yard.


The Shipyard Cafe is open from roughly 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., offering traditional breakfast and lunch fare including bacon and eggs, omelets, sandwiches, hot meals like the barbecue chicken and hot dogs, and salads.
