Betty's A1A Cafe in Ormond By The Sea Florida   Betty's A1A Cafe in Ormond By The Sea Florida Betty's A1A Cafe in Ormond By The Sea Florida. We don't go out to eat much but when we have visitors............ anyway on Thursday, Sept 16, 2010 when 2 of my wife's sisters were in town with their husbands we went to Betty's A1A Cafe in Ormond By The Sea Florida.  The waitress volunteered to snap a photo of the group.  Everyone had something different and we were all very pleased with the service and the food.  An assortment of entrees was ordered and enjoyed including fried haddock, chicken tenders, seafood platter and chopped sirloin platter.  I would recomend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

Why Do I Need An Ormond By The Sea Florida Specialist to buy or rent a home or condo? The short answer is that Residential Real Estate is local in nature. Prices and values vary greatly from one location to another as do Real Estate markets and practices. Ocean View Realty Group limits the area where we practice so that we can better serve our customers and clients. Ocean View Realty Group opened its office on Ocean Shore Blvd., (A1A) in 1991 and has helped hundreds of buyers, sellers, owners and renters with Ormond By The Sea Florida Real Estate transactions.  People quite often avoid using a Specialist because in many businesses Specialists cost more. This is not true in Real Estate.  Unless you sign a contract with a Realtor for representation and Compensation, you pay nothing - the...

6 friends + 25 year friendshp = Free Aussie trip & appearance on Oprah's Show! Ormond Beach resident Linda Sullo, and 5 of her longtime friends will join Oprah on a free trip in December to Australia.  The six friends who are all teachers, or retired teachers from their hometown near Boston, were taken on an unexpected road trip that culminated in their vehicle pulling up "on stage" during the Oprah Show taping.  One of the friends, Cathy McCarthy was the one that actually wrote a letter to Oprah describing their longtime 25 year friendship and how the friends had counted on each other through the ups and downs over the last 25 years.  A call from the producer asking if the six women would get together for an interview started the ball rolling with a trip, first class flights, and an ex...

Can you hear me now?   No, this is not an ad for a phone company, just a story about how condo living can present some unique challenges.  We live in a condo along the second fairway of the north course at Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club, a gated golf community in Ormond Beach, Florida.The units are spacious and have a large wrap around screened porch.Our neighbor upstairs installed wireless speakers on his outside porch so they could sit out and listen to music.  As it turned out they were listening to more than music!  When the upstairs neighbors had their speakers on all of our phone calls on our cordless phone were being broadcast to the neighborhood.  Golfers could probably hear us as they hit the ball off the tee.  Turns out our cordless phone signal was being received by the s...
