For Liz, high-quality food with local roots is important. At her cafe you’ll find the breads, muffins, cookies, and other sundries of longtime Surfside Beach staple, Benjamin’s Bakery.
There are fudge, pralines, and truffles from her cousin’s chocolate confectioner shop in Mt. Pleasant, Sweet Juleps. She serves creamy frozen custard by Republic Ice Cream, a small company which continues to faithfully produce their grandfather’s original recipe from Coney Island here in Myrtle Beach. And she sources coffee from a supplier in the Wilmington area, roasted right in NC.
“We also sell candy by the pound,” she says. “People can fill up bags with old time favorites like M&M’s, Jelly Belly’s, Jordan Almonds, nerds, and salt water taffy.
Liz co-hosts a hit news talk show called, The Hot Talk Morning Show With Dave and Liz on WRNN 99.5 FM. It covers local, regional, national, and global news topics and politics. It’s currently the number one rated morning show on the Grand Strand.
Several years ago, she was nominated for a national Marconi Award. She’s also the spokesperson for Conway Ford, and is regularly seen on TV.
Liz already has a tremendous connection with people in Myrtle Beach due to her media presence.
“I want to be involved with the cafe because I’m very community-oriented,” she says. “Since I moved here, I’ve wanted to absorb everything around me so I can serve people better on the air. So I attend all the events I can and people know me personally. The morning talk show has allowed me to have the reach I want to have to bring people together. With this cafe, now I can create community here.
