Business Overview
SOS Stuffed On Seafood (restaurant and takeaway) and Fruits N Scoops (gelato bar) are side by side businesses working hand in hand on the beautiful Magnetic Island. The businesses are perfectly positioned at Shop 1 & 2, 4 Arcadia Road, Nelly Bay, within walking distance to the ferry and barge terminal and centrally located between both Peppers Blue on Blue Resort and The Mecure 1 Bright Point.
