For the first time in about 100 years, there’s a business operating on the northeast corner of Rehoboth Avenue and the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach that’s not selling candy – Dreamer Coffee and Juice Bar.
Owner Adile Akgoren opened the original Dreamer in 2015 at 32 Rehoboth Ave., on the opposite side of the Bandstand from the new location. The new store is located in the former Dolle’s Candyland business that had anchored that spot on the Boardwalk since 1927 before closing in late 2020, then moving up the street in 2021.
Akgoren took over the space soon after the candy store moved. The expectation was to open last year, but it never came to fruition. The menu hanging outside includes smoothies, acai bowls, overnite oats, iced drinks, fresh-made lemonades, bubble teas, matcha teas, popping boba, hot drinks, cookies, muffins, croissants and more.
Akgoren also owns Adeline New York, which is located a little farther west on Rehoboth Avenue in First Street Station.
