The lemonade stand was started over 50 years ago when Mario's dad gave him a hammer and told him to knock a hole in the wall of their general store (the place that is now Demitasse Restaurant next door). Mario has kept the tradition that was begun by his grandfather alive by maintaining a steadfast and stubborn insistence on using only the best ingredients and the correct preparation methods. The lemons are all squeezed by hand and he only uses real cane sugar. The inside of the store is like a German operating room...impeccable and spotless. He is the real deal and we need more like him!!!
