Five Points is due for a well-earned makeover in the coming years.
The Five Points streetscape will receive a well-earned makeover, to the benefit of Riverside Avondale residents.

Riverside Avondale Preservation Society has some major plans on the drawing board for a comprehensive Five Points makeover. Plans will incorporate both aesthetic and functional improvements, making it safer, more walkable, and more diverse in its eating, drinking and entertainment offerings.

The Five Points Plan was presented at the February Riverside Avondale Preservation society meeting, with the primary stakeholders, the Five Points Merchants Association, and many Riverside Avondale residents in attendance.

There's a variety of Bruschettas daily on the menu at The French Pantry.
There's a variety of Bruschettas daily on the menu at The French Pantry.

Lunchtime in Avondale and Murray Hill just got more interesting. The French Pantry produces hour-long waiting lines, even in the scorching heat, at its Powers Avenue location. Yes, it's that good. The current Edgewood Bakery in Murray Hill will be transformed into The French Pantry, and Avondale and Murray Hill will be home to only the second location for this massively popular lunchtime destination. This is another example of Murray Hill's vibrant redevelopment effort. 



Lemacaron hails from Sarasota, and is coming to The Shoppes of Avondale.
The Shoppes of Avondale welcomes a new luxurious selection of French pastries at Le Macaron.

In Avondale, you can savor the fine restaurants and cafes. You can taste the wine, cheese and chocolate. It may sound like a Parisian dream, but it’s reality for residents of Avondale.

The Shoppes of Avondale will soon welcome Le Macaron French Pastries. Le Macaron features a seemingly endless selection of ever so delicate, crisp-on-the-outside, decadent-on-the-inside French patisserie macarons, (and please don’t call them macaroons).

Le Macaron will set up shop in The Shoppes of Avondale this Summer.

Coming in the Spring, Le Macaron offers that signature French delicacy in a myriad of flavors and fillings. 


The home at 3331 Oak was renovated inside and out.
Mak was honored for the work he and his team did at the 2500 square foot home at 3331 Oak Street.

Bloom Realty was lucky enough to have listed one of this year’s winners, 3331 Oak Street in Avondale, redesigned by investor Donny Mak. He was awarded an “Outstanding Preservation Project” award at the meeting on February 18th.


Avondale Supports Farmer's Row at RAM

RAM is open 10 - 4 March through December

Avondale folks like it fresh -- and if you're an Avondale resident who hasn't been to Farmers Row at the Riverside Arts Market, or RAM, you're missing out.  Farmers Row organizers have worked hard to deliver a selection from local producers, as they like to say, "grown with love."

Get ready for the RAP Tour of Homes in April.
Every year, it's a new experience on the two-day Riverside Avondale Preservation Tour of Homes.
Avondale and Riverside Spring Tour of Homes is slated for April 16 and 17th, and the Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP) society is it hard at work scheduling the slate of stunning Avondale and Riverside homes for the self guided, two day tour.
Each and every Spring, Riverside Avondale Historic District residents open their doors to guests who want a glimpse into the most beautiful historic homes in the city, or for that matter, anywhere in the U.S.  


Dreamette bringing its unique brand of deliciousness to the Beaches.
Dreamette has been an Avondale and Murray Hill staple since 1948. 

Why do Avondale and Murray Hill dwellers love Dreamette? Simple, real ice cream, pure, delicious, no frills, cash only, and we'll wait on line on a hot summer night along with other souls just like us. The frozen yogurt-and-toppings craze of the last 10 years are of little interest to the purists among us, and Dreamette has been filling our critical craving in Avondale and Murray Hill since 1948.

More smaller restaurant may be able to serve hard liquor in Avondale.

Avondale restaurants smaller than 200 seats may qualify for a boost in revenue du to alchohol sales. 

The subject of Avondale restaurants is on the menu as lawmakers head to Tallahassee for the next legislative session.

Florida Representative Reggie Fullwood (Avondale) is going to bring up legislation that would enable more bars and restaurants in Avondale and Riverside to serve hard liquor. Under the current law, Avondale restaurants must have at least 200 seats to serve liquor beyond beer and wine. If Representative Fullwood’s bill is successful, restaurants as small as 100 seat capacity would be able to serve hard liquor.
