Every weekday morning at 8 a.m. we'll be visiting with a local restaurant operator to find out how they are doing during the pandemic. We'll check-in and find out what specials they're running, how you can order for delivery, take-out our curbside pickup.

They feature healthy energy bowls with a sorbet base, topped with granola, fresh fruit and more. They've also got smoothies, toast, oatmeal and coffee.

Nick says the Gamma bowl is a crowd favorite that he recommends to all first time customers.

Cloud 9 will have special promotions, deals and discounts going on throughout December. Nick says you can find out more information on their Facebook page. If you're looking for a stocking stuffer, the restaurant also features gift cards.

Evans says he encourages everyone to shop local, not only at his businesses but others in the community as well.
