I was invited by none other than Carolyn’s Cafe’s co-owner Keith Kahn.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating the opening of both Noodle World Jr. and CREAM (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me) in the Daybreak Plaza on the northeastern outskirts of Ontario Mills, and the first one out of the gate will be CREAM.
The gourmet dessert shop — which features super-premium ice cream, cookies, ice cream sandwiches, shakes, sundaes and more — will hold its grand opening from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday (June 4).
Ever since Steak ‘n Shake opened in Victorville a few years ago, we’ve been waiting for more locations here in the Inland Empire.
The chain has been ever so slowly opening locations here and there in Southern California.
A Santa Monica location opened in October 2014. A Burbank location followed at the end of last year. A location opened in Aliso Viejo on Monday.
Now finally, a Riverside location is set to open this summer.
San Bernardino-area food truck fans can rejoice…and dine at food trucks every day through the end of June.
We make no guarantees on the state of your waistline should you accept the challenge, however.
Yes, that means you can have lunch and dinner from the trucks.
Upland has one. So does Pomona. Starting tomorrow (May 18), Montclair will have a Jersey Mike’s Subs, too.
The new location, 9359 Central Ave., Suite B, is hosting a fundraiser through May 27.
The sandwich shop distributed thousands of fliers with various offers and will donate $3 for each offer redeemed. Recipients are the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and the American Youth Soccer Organization.
You used to be able to shop at fresh & easy, but we all know how that turned out.
The Mug Shakes, a new dessert shop in the Victoria Gardens Food Hall, had a very successful soft opening over the weekend.
The shop experienced long lines of customers — perhaps due to the tantalizing pictures of its products (like the one on the right) that garnered thousands of reactions on Facebook — and ended up having to close early due to sell-outs.
The location, which specializes in designer shakes, has been closed for a few days to regroup, hire some more employees and will reopen at 10 a.m. on Thursday (May 5).
As I was glancing through the latest Rialto city administrator update (you can read it yourself here), something caught my attention.
A new shopping center, anchored by “Smart and Final Express” (likely a Smart & Final — Extra!) and a Dollar Tree, is also scheduled to have a “Hawaiian Ono” (Ono Hawaiian BBQ, perhaps?) and a drive-thru Dunkin’ Donuts!
That would bring the total number of Inland Empire locations to four.
