Remember back in January when I first told you about the impending arrival of a cult fave bakery to the space at 225 Main St. in Downtown El Segundo? Well, after what seemed like an eternity, Smallcakes Cupcakery and Creamery throws open their doors for their grand opening at 5pm today, with festivities and freebies the entire weekend. With over 200 locations, and appearances on Cupcake Wars, The View, and in USA Today, the confectionary treat shop is sure to become destination.

Thanks to a tip from eagle-eyed reader Frank, who’s been keeping watch on the erstwhile home of O + O Sicilian Kitchen in Santa Monica, I went by to check things out. Easy to miss, a new ABC Application has gone up on the front door. It appears that a branch of Rakkan Ramen will soon be moving into the space 1705 Ocean Ave. Suite 111 (Behind the former Joan’s on Third). The Japanese chain has two other locations around LA, and is known for its plant-based dashi that is easily customized to accommodate vegans.
For all you who lament RFD’s club sandwich’s disappearance from Santa Monica, have hope! I have it on good authority that Real Food Daily will be triumphantly returning to Santa Monica sometime next year. Although I don’t have an actual address yet, look for a location somewhere along Ocean Ave. I’ll keep my eyes open…
So what’s the deal with the diminutive Biobar space at 11966 Wilshire in Brentwood? They haven’t opened in a while, recently the windows have been blacked out with blinds, and they are not answering their phone. For all intents and purposes, they appear closed even though they’ve left no clues. But a peek through the blinds (No, I’m not above such things) reveals a beehive of activity. Something is happening at Biobar, I just can’t figure out what. Let me know if you have more information…
Icy treat fave Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt has abandoned its conspicuous corner position at 3851 Main St. in Culver City. No idea what happened, but the for lease signs in the window confirm the departure. I’ll keep watching to see what may land in the prominent space.
Remember back in July, when I told you about some incredible detective work sent to me by a reader, Patricia? Practically out of thin air, she had deduced that the new building that was under construction at Montana Ave. between 15th and 16th streets was soon to be home to Santa Monica’s second branch of popular salad slingers, Sweetgreen. I couldn’t get confirmation, but I passed this info along based on her confidence and the evidence she provided. Turns out, she was right. Paper is now up on the window for all to see that Sweetgreen will soon have a new location on Montana Ave.
