Comings & Goings: CREAM and coffee bliss in Davis

The rain was steady on Saturday, Sept. 21, but so was the line for free ice cream sandwiches on opening day for CREAM. Ice cream fans, especially teens and college students, held umbrellas to stay dry in the line that stretched from 110 F St., next to the Hallmark Inn lobby, to the AT&T Store and beyond.

The event included a ribbon-cutting, and performances by the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh and Bakuhatsu Taiko Dan drummers.

The store’s main draw is custom-made ice cream sandwiches, where patrons choose the flavors of ice cream and warm cookies. (Tip: You can pick two different cookies, if you like!) CREAM is an acronym for Cookies Rule Everything Around Me.

Common Grounds Coffee reopened before noon on Wednesday, and by the next morning, word spread. There was a line out the door from 7 to 9 a.m. on Thursday.

Patrons greeted owner Son Chung with hugs and smiles, congratulating him for surviving a battle that started last spring, when the coffeehouse lost its lease in the Oakshade Town Center in South Davis. Developer Regency Centers wanted to make room for the upcoming chain store, Pet Food Express, which is under construction. It took community outcry for him to secure the spot next door, at 2171 Cowell Blvd., across the patio from Dos Coyotes.

Chung is excited about the new, larger space, which adds outdoor seating (for dogs, too). It serves coffee drinks and snacks like it always did, but Chung plans to add to the menu. There will be cookies from Cookie Connection in Woodland, and he is negotiating with an area baker to sell its cakes and pastries. In a few weeks, he’ll add sandwiches and salads, as well as local beer and wine.

The new T.J. Maxx at Second Street Crossing, 4651 Second St., is scheduled to open at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. that day. More details are forthcoming, a spokeswoman said Friday. The store offers designer clothing at discount prices.

Family Dollar is scheduled to open on Thursday at 1260 Lake Blvd., in West Davis, according to Bryn Winburn, public relations manager for the company. It’s a discount store that sells groceries, health and beauty, home goods and household products.

Preeti Girl, the women’s fashion and accessories boutique at 200 E St., is temporarily closed for remodeling. It could be a few more days before everything is ready, owner Preeti Sodhi said Tuesday. Two people sent me messages asking if it had closed, so I thought I’d pass the word that it’s only temporary.

————

Nearby, the owners of Sweet and Shavery hope to begin construction soon, possibly opening this fall. It’s a shave ice, custard and crepe place going in at 210 E St.
