The Workshop in Wrightsville Beach has expanded its menu this season.
 
The coffee shop and shark-tooth jewelry business was opened by Amy Longtin on April 21 of last year.
 
The Workshop now offers gourmet sandwiches in addition to its signature coffee and smoothie bar. Paninis, fresh vegetables, different proteins and specialty sandwiches such as a Cubano and a caprese, with mozzarella, basil, tomato, olive oil and balsamic glaze, now hold a place on the menu, Longtin said.
 
The small shop at 86 Waynick Blvd. is only 450 square feet, but Longtin is pleased with how The Workshop has turned out.
 
“It’s cozy, you know,” Longtin said. “Business has been amazing.”
 
Though she likes her space, Longtin said she has plans for the future of her business and wants to work on a new project each year.
 
“I want to add some things to the menu, increase outdoor seating, add Sunday brunch,” she said.
 
In addition to the restaurant, Longtin also sells shark-tooth jewelry out of the same location. The teeth are found by Longtin and her boyfriend while scuba diving locally, and Longtin designs the final product.
