Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop in South Davis’ Oakshade Town Center was hoping to open as soon as Monday but “has had a couple of hiccups. So there is yet another small delay,” according to a Friday Facebook post.

Mr. Pickle’s offers deli sandwiches on “San Francisco-style breads.” Many of its specialties have classic meats and cheeses, with extras like avocado, cream cheese and bacon. There are hot and cold sandwiches; and green, potato, macaroni, chicken and tuna salads.

The deli fills the spot where Davis Creamery was. To see the company website, go to http://www.mrpicklesinc.com.

Speaking of sandwiches, Panera Bread opened its Davis café on Friday, Aug. 31. It’s at 609 Third St., in the former Blockbuster building.

Customers order breakfast, lunch or dinner at the counter from a selection of sandwiches, salads, soups, breads and other baked goods. Beverages include sodas, teas, coffee drinks and smoothies.

Steve Haydu, a joint venture partner, said, “Panera Bread is a brand that fits so well with the Davis community, and we are thrilled to be a part of the active community and near UC Davis to offer an everyday oasis atmosphere for the local students.”

The news release said, “With its identity rooted in handcrafted, freshly baked, artisan bread, Panera Bread is committed to providing great-tasting, quality food that people can trust. Highlighted by antibiotic-free chicken, whole-grain bread, select organic and all-natural ingredients, and a menu with zero grams added trans-fat, … (it) offers flavorful, wholesome offerings.”

At the end of each day, café management plans to donate all unsold bread and baked goods to Davis hunger relief agencies.

The hours are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.

Panera Bread Company owns and franchises more than 1,500 bakery-cafés under the Panera Bread, Saint Louis Bread Co. and Paradise Bakery & Café names. Its website is http://www.panerabread.com.

The Chinese buffet Great Wall of China II closed last month. The restaurant was at 223 F St., in the E Street Plaza. A new sign is up for Taqueria El Burrito. I’ll keep you posted as information is available.

Halloween City is poised to temporarily fill the former Dimple Records space at 212 F St., according to city reports. Look for the costume store to emerge in coming weeks, and close in early November.

Bubble Belly, a new store featuring “designer maternity jeans, hip baby clothes and cool accessories,” opens Wednesday at 340 G St.

It carries “a well-edited selection of hard-to-find designer maternity jeans for the stylish, expectant mommy, and hip, unique baby apparel for the best-dressed baby on the block.”

Owner Silvie Truong will host a grand opening on Saturday, Sept. 15.

Its online store has been open for a while at https://shopbubblebelly.com/index.php.

Davis Ace’s remodeled pet department reopened last month at 830 Fourth St. It was temporary relocated during the construction but is back — bigger and better. The new space is larger, with an open floor plan.

Stone Soup Catering & To Go changed its business model at the end of August. While it still offers to-go food, it will be limited to Fridays — and pre-orders only. Walk-ins are over for the tucked-away kitchen at 423-B L St.

“This does not mean you are all out of luck for our delicious fried chicken, mac and cheese, and all the other goodies we offer,” the owners wrote in an Aug. 28 Facebook post.

Pre-ordered dinners must be picked up between noon and 5 p.m. on Fridays. Orders are taken until 3 p.m. on Thursdays. Watch for family-friendly additions to its soul food menu.

Its new website lists each Friday’s menu at http://www.stonesoupdavis.com. For more information, call 530-758-1719 or email [email protected].

Black Dragon Brewery debuted on Thursday at 175 W. Main St., Suite B in Woodland.

While Black Dragon beers brew, it’s pouring several Northern California guest beers. Starters are from Rubicon, Anderson Valley, Bear Republic, Lagunitas, Lockdown and Ale Industries.

Black Dragon beers should emerge in about a month. First on tap include Araya India Pale Ale, Gypsy Blonde Ale, Blueberry Blonde and Dragon’s Eye Porter. The beverage list also includes homemade sodas and wines from Woodland’s Route 3.

The menu is limited to appetizers and sliders for now, owner Heather Breatt said. She owns the brewery with her husband, brewmaster Jason Breatt. They also run Woodland Homebrew Supply, which opened in November at the same site.
