7 Must-Try Wellen Park Restaurants

What’s better than a wide variety of mouth-watering breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert options? Accessing these delicious treats without leaving the Wellen Park community! 

With so many mouth-watering options, the restaurants in and around the Marketplace will satisfy just about any craving.

 

Barrel & Bean

What to order: Tortuga Sandwich + Caramel Macchiato

While not technically located in the Marketplace, Barrel & Bean is still a must-try and a neighborhood favorite. 

Adjacent to the Wellen Park Welcome Center, enjoy craft coffee, craft beer, wine and small plates from Chef Mike Leopold. 

With exciting events, including live music on the outdoor patio, wine and beer dinner pairings, themed “Neighborhood Nights,” and sandwiches named after our Wellen Park neighborhoods, this go-to spot is the perfect hub of community connections.

 

Bocca Lupo

What to order: New Jersey Tomato Pie (cheese on the bottom, sauce on the top!)

Cooked in an open-mouthed, coal-fired oven they call “The Wolf,” Bocca Lupo ensures that every last pizza is created to perfection. 

The restaurant almost always features a new ‘deal of the day’ on their Facebook page, so be sure to check before you order. 

Bocca Lupo specializes in a wide variety of mouth-watering Italian cuisines like garlic knots, mozzarella sticks, Caprese salad, meatball parmigiana sub, New-York-style coal-fired pizza, calzones, pasta, and more.

 

China One

What to order: General Tso’s Chicken 

Offering authentic and delicious tasting Chinese cuisine, China One is known for its variety in taste and high quality, fresh ingredients. Their take on Chinese food is more of a New York-Style because they typically use more soy than California-style cooking. 

A restauranteur with more than 30 years of experience, Danny Shi opened China One in the Marketplace where his brother, Tony Shi, is the chef. Danny also opened Fuji Sushi Hibachi Noodles a few doors down!  

 

Fuji Sushi Hibachi Noodles

What to order: Super Godzilla Roll 

Danny Shi’s second restaurant in the Marketplace focuses on Japanese cuisine — with over 30 different types of sushi, it’s a must for all your favorite rolls. From the Lobster Dynamite Roll to the Angry Birds Roll and everything in between, every dish is vibrant and delicious. 

Fuji Sushi Hibachi Noodles partners with Bite Squad, Door Dash and Uber Eats, so you can dine-in or easily carry-out.

 

Irma’s Tacos

What to order: Grilled Gulf Shrimp Taco + Blanco Strawberry Martini 

Executive Chef Mike Leopold of Off the Wagon brings his amazing street and ethnic tacos to Wellen Park’s Marketplace. 

Take your pick from a wide variety of old-world, Tex-Mex or seafood tacos and pair them with 3 Bridges Brewing’s craft beer and full bar beverages.

Take your Taco Tuesdays to the next level with their 2-5 p.m. Happy Hour that features a Station Light Lager, House Margarita, well drinks and house wine — other daily specials can be found on their Facebook page.

 

Peachwave

What to order: Key lime pie yogurt topped with crumbled waffle cones 

As one of the first brands to begin using the frozen yogurt “self-serve” model, Peachwave allows you to create your very own masterpiece in a bowl. 

Dig into their 12 flavors and more than 50 toppings, including fresh fruit, crushed candy and cookies, brownie pieces, chopped nuts, edible cookie dough, and much more. 

Peachwave West Villages owners, Rob and Vanessa Tinsley, live in our IslandWalk neighborhood and are proud to own a small business that serves our community — stop in to meet some friendly neighbors and scoop up a tasty treat.

 

Dunkin’

What to order: Munchkins Donut Hole Treats (in just about every flavor!)

We’re so excited to now have Dunkin’, America’s favorite coffee and baked goods chain, in our Wellen Park Marketplace. 

Whether it’s Sunday morning or Thursday afternoon, grab a Dunkfetti donut, their all-new “Extra Charged Coffee” (with 20% more caffeine), or plant-based food options. 

Plus, when you’re a DD Perks member, you can order ahead of time on the Dunkin’ app to avoid waiting in line.
