Opheliya’s Coffee and Pizza opened earlier this month at 2124 S. Broad St., and as you can guess by the name, it’s not the typical pizza joint.
Owner Will Mamedoly opened the restaurant because he likes coffee and pizza, but most of all he wants to sell coffee and pizza at affordable prices. He buys the coffee from LaRoca by D & L Coffee , but he plans on branching out to bring in Costa Rica red bean from a friend’s plantation.
The dough is hand-tossed and the sauce is made from scratch. Mamedoly described the sauce as sweeter than other sauces. “I want to put the labor in it,” he said.
