The transformation from International House of Pancakes to Westport Pancake House was easy.
But pancake sales flattened. Westport’s most famous triangle-roofed building stayed vacant for 3 years.
A new tenant arrives soon. Thaeroa Nails and Spa will fill a crying need for one more nail salon in town.
It may be Westport’s biggest. It will definitely be the most difficult to pronounce.
Meanwhile, 20 yards away, Bagel Maven is set to reopen early this coming week. It’s not official — a note on the door (underneath a fan letter) says to check the Facebook page “Friends of Bagel Maven Alex” — but a reliable source advises all those friends that the long renovation is almost over.
Alex will be happy to slice your bagel. No reason to hurt those nails.
