Merci Clement Replaces Stick Shop In Downtown Santa Monica

While no one was looking, Stickhouse, at 223 Broadway in downtown Santa Monica, slipped out of existence and was replaced my another treat shop Merci Clement.  If you read this blog, you may remember Merci Clement from its opening in Beverly Hills earlier this year.  (Interestingly, it may already be closed:  A spokesperson at the Santa Monica location reported it as closed and it doesn’t appear on their official website, but I cannot confirm this.)  It looks like this incarnation retains Stickhouse’s array of frozen treats, and adds some French pastries as well.


Merci Clement Coming Soon To BH

Paper covering the windows at 9887 S. Santa Monica Blvd. in Beverly Hills informs us that we can expect a new French café, Merci Clement to open soon.  Not much out there yet, just an undeveloped website and Facebook page.  According to the notices on the door, we can look for a menu of specialty coffee, salads, sandwiches, crepes, chocolates, “petit cakes”, and gelato.  It looks like they’re planning on opening some time this year…
