Damn Fine Coffee and Fried Pies opening delayed to summer

Show map
Originally expected to open in April, Damn Fine Coffee and Fried Pies now plans to open in early summer at 910 Hall Ave, Seabrook. The owners wanted to open sooner but have to first settle issues with their electricity company and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The business sells coffee at local farmers markets but will expand its offerings with a storefront that also sells desserts, such as fried pies and handmade gelato. The business will also sell nitro cold brew, craft sodas and coffee fresh roasted on site daily. 281-942-0954. www.itsdamnfine.com
