Changes At Manhattan Village …

I’ve been keeping a close eye on Manhattan Village, the shopping mall on the corner of Rosecrans and Sepulveda in Manhattan Beach.  With stiff competition from many new shopping and multi-use complexes next door in El Segundo, Manhattan Village is currently getting a much-needed redo.  Here’s the latest progress:  A new Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is under construction in a brand new part of the mall at the farthest southern point on the property, and just to the right is the new See’s Candies.  Check out an artist’s rendering of the flashy new mall here, and in the mean time, I’ll keep watching as details emerge…ManhattenVillage.jpg

More Changes To Century City…

You already know that when it comes to the upcoming changes to the food scene at the Westfield Century City Shopping Center (and there will be many)… I got this.  So here’s the latest:  The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf that inhabits the prominent location in the erstwhile center of the mall is closing.  But a new branch will be reopening nearby.  It is taking over the old space built for the long-gone Potato Corner near the recently new See’s Candies.  It looks like the move will be complete sometime in February.  We’ll have to see what takes over the old space…

Coffee Bean Closes At Lincoln And Michigan In SM

Well, I didn’t see this coming…  It looks like the busy Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf located on the corner of Lincoln and Michigan in Santa Monica has permanently closed down.  They’ve wasted no time papering the windows and scraping the name from the front of the building, and judging by the “for lease” signs on the space, there’s no replacement lined up.  All those drowsy students at adjacent Samohi will just have to source their caffeine somewhere else…

The Westside Gets A New Coffee Bean

The brand new branch of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf that was under construction in the curious space on the southwest corner of the super-busy intersection of Wilshire and Federal is now open.  Where you might find parking is anyone’s guess.  But while you’re driving around looking for a space, you can read more about the SoCal fave beverage shop here.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Landing Soon On Wilshire At Federal…

Signs recently went up announcing that a brand spanking new branch of locally-based java behemoth Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will soon be taking over the space on the southwest corner of the hyper-busy intersection of Wilshire and Federal in West LA.  Seems like an interesting choice for location given the craziness of the traffic and lack of parking.  No word on an opening date but I’ll keep checking…
