Chino Hills getting two new eateries

The Shoppes at Chino Hills will be gaining both an Irish pub and a coffee house/ice cream shop in the coming months.

Currently located at Hollywood and Vine, Dillon’s Irish Pub & Grill will be expanding into the Inland Empire this fall. Dillon’s will set up shop in an 8,000-square-foot space near H & M. Dillon’s claim to fame is comfort food and a wide variety of draft beers at affordable prices.

The Hollywood location offers $3 draft beer pints. Not too shabby.

Hmm…suddenly, I’m craving a black and tan.

Dripp, a new coffee boutique, is preparing to open this summer at 13855 City Center Drive, Suite 3015, across from California Pizza Kitchen. The Chino Hills Dripp is the first of what owner Rabih Sater hopes to be a chain of coffee shops.

Utilizing a unique Japanese slow drip technique, Dripp will hand-brew one cup of coffee at a time, to order, using specialty-roasted, ground daily coffees and espressos from around the world. Dripp will also offer a variety of ice cream flavors and freshly baked cookies which can be combined for made-to-order ice cream sandwiches.
