Former Agave kitchen boss Leisa Berlin (original owner of Second Street Popcorn and Candies (several years ago), and mom of Agave owner Chris McKeown has opened Edie Bee’s Confection Shop just in time for the sweet summer season with all manner of sweets, licorice, top-quality chocolates and vintage candies. Edie Bees is at 115 Second St. where Cake Bar and Second Street Grill used to be. Leisa’s daughter Sarah McKeown has opened a juice bar and restaurant in the back with small bites and breakfasts. But in the front, sweet treats are the order of the day.
You will enjoy the memories some of these candies will evoke. Over 220 jars full of colorful sweets line the shelves, and the top-end chocolates are not available anywhere else here at the beach. “No, I don’t expect to get rich off of this,” says the original owner of Second Street Popcorn & Candies, “but I just felt that Lewes needed a quality candy store. And this is it.”
