I took note of baklava cafe the other day …
A big grand opening sign … but no menu? Curious to see them take down the paper and share some more info.
From the storefront, looks like they’re making great progress, and should hopefully hit their opening date of March 30 (or maybe their friends/family/press sneak preview on March 29th … does that mean I can get an invite?)
I had the opportunity to try some of Diana Harman’s wares (from her new catering business, Dine My Darling) — and I’ll say I was impressed. In a city already falling in love with Miss Rachel’s Pantry (who has been seen teaching a sellout class at COOK), I think it’s wonderful to see another vegan catering business spring up.
The pictures don’t do it nearly enough justice, but imagine a light, spring salad featuring coconut ‘bacon’ with lemon dressing, and a curried tempeh wrap (my tastings of choice). Wonderful.
Menu for the samples available:
I noticed a coming soon sign on the old Bus Stop space last week, and it looks like they’ve made lots of progress in there:
I rustled up my courage and went inside (since someone was in there). They really have done a lot of work already — they re-did the floors earlier in the week and you can see the painting progress. They’re shooting for a soft opening in the near future, and a grand opening at the end of the month.
Two of the owners were there, and were really nice to chat with. It sounds like a great shop, and happy to see it come to Queen Village.
Owners Cindy & Wendy (Owner Ellen not pictured).
I can’t find their website (as of yet), but at least one vendor mentions that they’ll be selling in the shop. Cindy and Wendy said that Urban Princess will be a women’s boutique selling a variety of wares — jewelry, “a little bit of everything.” Excited to see it!
Sugarcube in Old City.
The shoe lover’s lover, Bus Stop, moved up the street to 727 4th this weekend (formerly 750 4th).
The new space is much larger, but I wonder if they’re losing some of the coziness that the retail area had in the last shop. Opinions?
