Beach Hut Deli riding tide to Second Street

By From page A7 | June 02, 2013

Beach Hut Deli announced that it’s closing its store downtown and building a new one off Second Street, across from Target. Saturday was scheduled to be its last day.

“We are proud to have been part of the Davis community for the past five years and look forward to decades of continued service,” founder Troy Feist posted on a sign in the store window at 109 E St., in The Lofts.

The new deli, set to open this fall, will be at 4515 Fermi Place, next to Chase Bank.


Davis Flea Market will host its next sale the weekend of June 15-16 at its new, permanent space at 946 Olive Drive.

“We love that we have Rock Band University, Rocknasium, Pepper Peddler Coffee and Green Bicycle Depot among our neighbors on the ‘wrong side of the tracks,’ ” founder Lauren Cole Norton wrote.

The new spot soon may have options like the ability for vendors to set up permanent indoor spaces. Norton, who is from Ireland, also mentioned “boot sales,” where vendors could sell items from the trunk of their car.


Massage Heights opened Saturday in The Marketpace. It fills the space last held by Massage Envy, which moved downtown near Hallmark Inn.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. For information, call 530-564-5431 or visit www.massageheights.com.


Davis Estate Jewelry & Antiquities is setting up at 227 E St., Suite 3, in the alley between Peet’s Coffee & Tea and Chipotle.

Owner Dan Dowling said the store will include a few antiques from Antiques Plus, but its focus will be jewelry. It’s open by appointment for now; with expanded hours to come. Call him at 530-902-3o4o.


Yolo Coffee Company in Woodland closed on May 26. The coffeehouse, at 421 Pioneer Ave., Suite A, is under the same ownership as Yoloberry Yogurt in Davis.


The Center for Integrative Animal Medicine hosted an open house on Saturday. It opened recently at 635 Anderson Road, Suite 20, in Davis. Veterinarian Madeline Yamate specializes in alternative treatments, often as a complement to traditional veterinary medicine.

“Our furry clients and their humans find our clinic a very calming and healing place,” Yamate said. “We work with your Western veterinarian to improve your pet’s quality of life.”


Rocket into Reading, a new summer reading program launched by credentialed reading specialists Tara Johnson and Jean Salk, will begin its first session on Tuesday, June 11.

It offers programs to build reading and writing skills for kindergartners through third-graders, with a maximum ratio of six students per teacher. Sign-ups for mini-camps are through the Davis Art Center.
