Fruit Factory Comes To Century City

Something new has opened in the Food Court of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center.  Fruit Factory is billing itself as “The Ultimate Fruit Experience”, and offers gourmet caramel apples, chocolate covered strawberries, dipped pretzels, and açaí bowls.  I’m told they are currently in soft opening awaiting certain permits, so their full line may not be available just yet.  We wish them the best of luck.

Here’s A Glimpse Inside The New Food Court Of The Westfield Century City Shopping Center…

Hey, I get it…  A great many of you are riveted by the transformation of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center and are constantly checking for updates.  I’m eagerly watching as well.  This is what the food court looks like right now…


Rori’s Artisanal Creamery Set To Open This Saturday In SM

Well that didn’t take long…  It was only back in mid-August that I first noticed that the LA area was about to get its first branch of Santa Barbara’s popular ice cream shop Rori’s Artisanal Creamery.  And now, only about two months later (a miracle in Santa Monica), they appear ready to throw open their doors at 910 Montana Ave. in Santa Monica.  Rori’s Artisanal Creamery will have its grand opening this Saturday, October 17th at 11:00am according to their Facebook page and the flyers that have blanketed the city.


Frozen Fruit Co. Coming Soon To Montana Ave.

It looks like Montana Ave. in Santa Monica is about to get not just one, but two icy treat shops soon.  Recently, I told you about the impending arrival of Santa Barbara’s Rori’s Artisanal Creamery.  A little over a block away, signs have gone up in the window of 908 Montana that used to house a scent store (yes, it did exist) announcing that Frozen Fruit Co. will soon be inhabiting the space.  According to the window display, FFC specializes in “frozen fruit swirls”.  I can’t seem to locate a great deal of information, and their website is still being built, but you can follow their progress on Twitter here. 


Rori’s Artisanal Creamery Coming Soon To Montana Ave.

With locations in Santa Barbara, it appears that popular ice cream shop Rori’s Artisanal Creamery is expanding south.  Signs recently went up in the windows indicating that the LA area’s first Rori’s will be located at 910 Montana Ave. in Santa Monica.  No word on when the organic icy treats will be first available, and it looks like they’ve still got a way to go, but I’ll keep watching…
