Avalon Coffee Rio Cafe & Grill

Giovanni and Sandy Sanzone grew up working in family owned pizzeria businesses. They started and owned Little Italy Restaurant in Wildwood Crest for 20 years. In 2016, they sold Little Italy Restaurant and have now moved on to owning Avalon Coffee in Rio Grande, which was created by Sean Ford and Mike Nestor. They hope to enhance the already successful business that was created by Mike and Sean and add a bit of their own fresh ideas to please the amazing clientele of Avalon Coffee. They have started by adding their very own homemade bread and plan on introducing some great menu items. Also in the plan for the future is a grand remodel of the coffee shop, hoping to be underway after this summer.
