Breakfast Republic Expands Into Culver City

Good news People of Culver City, your first meal of the day is about to get more interesting!  There’s window paper up one of the spaces in the Harlow development, on the corner of Washington and Hughes, announcing the impending arrival of Breakfast Republic.  BR has a smattering of locations mostly south of here, but this will be only their second LA County space (after West Hollywood).  Look for a menu of benedicts, omelets, pancakes, scrambles, as well as sandwiches, burritos, and vegan options.  Oreo Cookie pancakes anyone?

Sidecar Doughnuts Coming To Culver City

Good news Culver City, huckleberry doughnuts are heading you way!  There’s window covering up on one of the spaces in Culver Center (space 350 to be exact) on the corner of Overland and Washington Blvd., announcing a future coveted branch of Sidecar.  Promising “The World’s Freshest Doughnuts”, innovative and wildly popular Sidecar began in Costa Mesa and has since expanded to currently 5 locations, making this the 6th.  It appears they plan on opening in early 2022.  You’re welcome.

Boulon D’Amour Spreads The Love To Century City

Local java charmer Boulon D’Amour appears to be opening a branch in the Westfield Century City Shopping Center.  There’s window covering on a free-standing kiosk on the first floor announcing the news.  Boulon D’Amour operates a pretty spot on Washington Blvd. and is shooting for a Winter opening at this location.  Expect various coffees, teas, signature drinks, and toasts.

Beach & Brew Replacing Kifune In Venice

When landmark Kifune Sushi Bar closed up shop at the end of last year after 34 years due to the owner’s retirement, it left a giant hole at 405 Washington Blvd in Venice.  Now it looks like a new venture is giving the prominent corner a go:  An ABC application taped to the front door informs us that something called Beach & Brew is moving in.  I can’t seem to find much on B&B, so if you have information let me know…

Qwench Juice Bar Coming To Culver City

A banner is up on a space in the Culver Crossroads shopping center on the corner of Washington and Sepulveda announcing that an outpost of juice expert Qwench is intent on moving in.  Let’s hope the move-in goes much more smoothly that the branch of Qwench in Westwood, which took an astonishing three years to complete.  Look for a menu of juices, smoothies, bowls, sandwiches, kombucha, tea, and coffee.

Go Get Em Tiger Coming To Culver City

Window paper is up on one of the ground floor spaces in the mixed-use One Culver complex that sits between Washington and Culver Blvd. announcing a branch of innovative coffee purveyors Go Get Em Tiger.  This branch will be their farthest west to date and sits on the Culver Blvd. side of the property, in space 104.  GGET began as a pop-up in the Sqirl Café in 2012 and has currently expanded to seven locations.  No word on an opening date yet.GGET.jpg

 

Bok Bok Chicken Landing In Culver City Soon

It looks like popular Las Vegas Mediterranean chain Bok Bok Chicken is expanding its presence in LA.  Back in June, they opened a location in Downtown LA.  And now, a banner affixed to the front of a space in the Culver Crossroads shopping center on the corner of Washington and Sepulveda is announcing the expansion.  Look for a menu of panini, pitas, and plates of shawerma, falafel, rotisserie chicken, with other Mediterranean specialties.

Menotti’s Coffee Stop Landing On Washington In LA

Poplar hip Venice caffeine joint Menotti’s Coffee Stop is continuing to expand.  Recently they appeared on Sunset in Hollywood.  Now, according to the new signs, it looks like that they are opening another location in an old hardware store at 12450 W Washington Blvd. in Los Angeles (Or is it Culver City?  It’s confusingly written both ways on-line.)  I’m not sure when the flat whites and cortados will start pouring, but it looks like they’re not too far off…

Jimmy John’s Expands Into Culver City

I’ve been watching the new construction on the northeast corner of Washington and Overland in Culver City to see what may develop.  After a new Starbucks, it appears that a branch of sandwich chain Jimmy John’s is intent on moving in.  There are still a lot of spaces left on the ground floor, so I’ll keep watching to see what else may land there.
