Yet Another CBTL Gone?

I’ve been watching the mass extinction of The Westside’s beloved Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.  It appears yet another one may have bitten the dust.  The popular CBTL at 2901 Main St. in Santa Monica appears to be closed.  While it doesn’t have the poster announcing the closure as the other ones have had, the windows are papered over and the equipment has been removed.  What is going on?

Another Coffee Bean Gone From The Westside…

Earlier this week, I told you about the permanent closure of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on S Beverly Dr. in Beverly Hills.  I reader was quick to point out that the CBTL that anchors the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and S Beverly Glen Blvd. was also closing as of Sunday, May 17th.  I went by the coffee shop and checked it out:  A notice in the window confirms that this branch is now permanently closed.  What’s going on with CBTL?

Stan’s Donuts Calls It Quits In Westwood

I’ve been hearing from horrified fans that, after 55 years, beloved pastry purveyor Stan’s Donuts has permanently closed in Westwood.  A gracious note from Stan Berman on the front thanks patrons for their “support and friendship”.  It appears the decision to close was in the works anyway, but COVID-19 sped things up.

Starbucks Permanently Closed on Montana/15th St.

Back in early February, I mentioned to you that I had heard a rumor that Starbucks was closing its location at 15th St. and Montana Ave. in Santa Monica.  At the time, I had no proof.  This week, a note went up on the door that they have permanently closed.  Expensive rents on Montana Ave. are to blame, or so I’m told.
