See Moreboardwalk- Homemade Fudge/ Fancy Coffee Menu, with descriptions and large coffee and expresso machines. I ordered a large caramel macchiato. It tasted fine/ little less flavorful with more frothiness. I’ve NVR had such a visceral reaction to any coffee before: extremely painful gas pains, took tums- no relief. Didn’t identify the cause as the coffee at first until the gas got so excruciating that I had my husband look up possible causes; we realized I hadn’t had anything else and then diarrhea struck and nausea to point of vomiting. My belly bloat looked like I swallowed a watermelon. I’m so frustrated because it is clear that with little to no customers, the machines probably aren’t washed or maintained and I’m an idiot for thinking that was a good idea. They should be shut down during these months if they can’t afford or hire staff to keep customers from getting sick!! I’m disgusted. See Less
