Taqueria El Burrito opened on Wednesday in the former Great Wall of China II space at 223 F St., in the E Street Plaza.

Owner Jose Cortez said he’s wanted to open an eatery in Davis since before he opened one in Natomas two years ago. It took this long to find the right spot.

The menu features authentic Mexican food and a salsa bar. Customers order at the counter, and employees bring food to their table. Cortez said the customer favorite is the Christmas burrito, which is any burrito with red and green enchilada sauces, sprinkled with (white) cheese.

Hours are 10 a.m. to midnight daily for now. He may extend it to 3 a.m. some nights if it remains busy. The phone is 530-756-1606.

Dutch Bros. Coffee will open in Davis on Friday, Nov. 30, with free drinks all day, owner Sean Provost said. “All day” for Dutch Bros. is around the clock: It’s open 24/7.

The store is at 980 W. Olive Drive, in the former Caffino kiosk.

“We have quality coffee, freezes, smoothies and flavor-infused energy drinks,” a news release said.

Sean and Lynsey Provost have two Dutch Bros. locations in Woodland. The Davis store is their third. Find them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/DutchBrosWoodland.

After a decade in Davis, The Bo Tree yoga studio will offer its final class on Dec. 22, owner Teri Bowen announced.

In a Nov. 3 letter posted on the studio’s website, Bowen wrote, “Over the last 10 years, I have created, built, nourished and loved The Bo Tree as a space for yoga and conscious living. … Owning a yoga studio was never my dream or my plan. It just happened.”

In recent years, Bowen went to work full time as an engineering consultant in Sacramento ­— “in part to keep the studio going,” she wrote.

She said she will refund any unused passes, and is discounting the drop-in fee. For more information, visit http://www.thebotree.com/.

“I send a big, heartfelt thank you to everyone who has crossed paths with me under The Bo Tree,” Bowen said.

The yoga studio is at 803 Second St., Suite C-1, in the Chen Building. In an interesting twist, Lift Pilates owner Laura Colter plans to return her business to that downtown spot at the end of December. Its current home is at 1736 Picasso Ave.

The two businesses have a history of trading spaces. In late 2010, Lift Pilates took over The Bo Tree’s former location, a larger studio at 817 Fourth St., before Lift moved to Picasso.

Coulter looks forward to getting back downtown. “We are thrilled, and so are our clients,“ she said.

The owner of Teabo Café in Oakshade Town Center hopes to have the bubble tea shop open by Dec. 1. The store is at 2191 Cowell Blvd., Suite E, where Quizno’s was.

Owner Adam Mah graduated from UC Davis a year ago. “If there’s a delay, opening will be the (Dec.) 8th, which is a lucky number for the Chinese,” he said.

The drink menu will include teas, milk teas, smoothies, ices, Italian sodas and coffee. Items like tapioca pearls and/or various jellies may be added to the drinks, creating what is known as tapioca (milk) tea, bubble tea or boba. It will feature food like popcorn chicken, fries, nachos and various Asian snacks, Mah said.

It’s on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TeaboCafe.

Boheme has outgrown its space. In early December, owner Dawn Donahue plans to move her “hip used clothing” store to 409 Third St. The current space at 222 D St., Suite 9A, is shared with Paulina’s, a women’s clothing boutique. The two stores opened in July in the former Renew Denim spot.

The new location is the yellow house near Burgers & Brew that housed leasing offices for apartments in UC Davis’ West Village development.

Additional space means Donahue can start selling clothing for men and “tweens.” The store offers credit to customers who bring in their gently used clothing for consignment. The website is http://bohemethreads.com.

Meanwhile, Paulina Jacobs-Sanders is finalizing plans to move Paulina’s in February. The store will remain at its current spot through the end of January. The new space is on F Street, but she can’t disclose the address yet. I’ll keep you posted. Her Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/PaulinasBoutique.

Mori Seiki, a machine tool manufacturing company based in Japan, celebrated the grand opening of its Davis plant on Nov. 8. The company “manufactures computer numeric control machine tools and systems, designing and building machines that actually build things themselves,” according to Tom Sakash’s story in The Enterprise.

The 200,000-square-foot factory is at 3805 Faraday Ave.

Work is still under way on:

  • El Toro Bravo Mexican Kitchen, in the former Baja Fresh spot at 237 D St. The food will be a Mexican fusion style and is under the same ownership as Burgers & Brew and Crepeville.
  • University of Beer, a bar that will fill the corner space next to Panera Bread at 615 Third St., at F Street.
  • Western Feed and Pet Supply at 407 G St., which will sell products for small and large animals.
