Popular Merritt Island café Mother Puckers will be opening an impressive second location at 5995 North Courtenay Parkway, according to a recent filing with the State of Florida and confirmed by owner Debora Steer.
Steer tells What Now Orlando that the new location will be three times as big as the original location, featuring much more outdoor seating, an ice cream shop, full café offerings, bigger retail space to sell store merchandise and two whole dog parks.
When asked about her motivation for opening a second location, Steer says “We are huge dog lovers and having a café with dog parks is much needed on that side of the island.”
According to Steer, the most notable dishes served at Mother Puckers are Mama’s Avocado Toast, the Apple Panini, and the hearty Pucker Bowl which contains potatoes, peppers, onions, bacon, sausage, spinach, tomatoes and eggs.
Until the new location opens in early October, those curious about the Mother Puckers experience may visit the original location at 125 S Tropical Trail in Merritt Island.
