Halo Top Scoop Shop Closes All Locations

When hometown low-calorie ice cream expert Halo Top laid down brick-and-mortar locations, people went crazy.  Recently however, I’ve been hearing from readers that the locations have abruptly closed.  So, I went by the Westfield Century City Shopping Center to check things out.  Sure enough, a notice on the front proclaims the sad news that all Halo Top Scoop Shops are now finished.  Could it have something to do with the recent acquisition of Halo Top by Wells Enterprises, the people behind Blue Bunny?  But all is not lost:  You can still find Halo Top in local grocery stores.

New Eateries Coming To Downtown Santa Monica… Halo Top, La Colombe, More!

I love good detective work…  A reader (Thanks SK!) sent me a pdf of a recent Downtown Santa Monica Market Report, which, on face value isn’t that riveting.  But if you scroll down to page 11, the document lists upcoming restaurants slated to open in Downtown.  Many I’ve already reported, but here are the ones I didn’t know about:  Halo Top Scoop Shop (304 Santa Monica Blvd.), La Colombe (604 Santa Monica Blvd.), Fresh Corn Grill (720 Wilshire), and Gyu-Kaku (231 Arizona Ave).
