That was quick. The revolving door I wrote about for the former Discoveries spot is already being filled with a burger joint. Judy’s Grinder, a Woodland eatery since 1977, is opening a new one at 213 E St., Suite A, where Huong Lan Sandwiches just closed.

A sign out front says it will open on Nov. 4. It’s also hiring.

The Woodland restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That location has an extensive menu, including burgers, hot and cold “grinder” sandwiches, chicken and Philly cheese steak sandwiches, gyro wraps, teriyaki plates, fish and chips, hot dogs, fries, and salads. Classic breakfast items like eggs, eggs Benedict, breakfast burritos and pancakes are on its menu as well. Treats include shakes, ice cream cones and smoothies. I’ll find out if the offerings will be different in Davis.

The original Judy’s Grinder is at 286 W. Main St. in Woodland. For more information, visit http://judysgrinder.com or call 530-662-8600.

The Melt will start serving its “grilled cheese happiness” soon, with a grand opening in November. It’s at 500 First St., in Davis Commons, and fills the former Ben & Jerry’s space.

I spoke with Paul Coletta, The Melt’s chief marketing officer, on Tuesday. Coletta encourages grilled cheese fans to “like” The Melt on Facebook or follow it on Twitter, where it will announce the grand opening date, and provide a password for access to a pre-opening event. When we spoke, the opening date was supposed to be Nov. 12, but his office emailed me on Thursday, saying that might change.

Meanwhile, the store has a new manager, and has begun hiring its crew. Hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sundays through Thursdays. On Friday and Saturday nights, it will stay open until 10 p.m.

The Davis store is the 13th brick and mortar for The Melt, which has another nine mobile locations. They are scattered around the Bay Area, with a few in the Los Angeles area, and a new one that just opened in Irvine. Davis is the farthest north.

Coletta said the chain wants to “continue to expand our presence in the Sacramento area; it’s the ideal market for The Melt.” Nothing is ready to announce on that front, however.

Its menu features five grilled cheese sandwiches, four soups and two salads. There are also combos, breakfast items and desserts. It has online ordering — there’s even an app for that. For details, visit www.themelt.com.

Roos’ Café owner Ru Hua Zheng plans a grand opening on Monday, Nov. 11, for her Mace Ranch indoor playplace and café. It’s at 2939 Spafford St., Suite 140A, in the Fifth Street Plaza, near Peña Drive.

Plans are tentative, and may include an earlier soft opening. She’ll post updates on Facebook.

Zheng, a Davis resident, created the concept “to provide a safe place for kids 0-5 to play while parents relax or socialize with other parents.”

About half of the 1,600-square-foot space will be filled with a kids’ play area, where little ones can explore while their parents socialize and enjoy family-friendly food and beverages. Business hours are tentatively set for 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with play area hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The café also will welcome people without children, Zheng noted. There will be a large, fenced outdoor seating area as well as the indoor space.

The menu will include sandwiches, salads, yogurts and healthy grab-and-go options, along with locally roasted coffee, specialty teas, organic juices and milk.

Pet Food Express opened on Tuesday in Oakshade Town Center, 2171 Cowell Blvd. It is joining with Common Grounds Coffee and Mr. Pickle’s Sandwich Shop for a grand opening (and reopening) event this weekend. The “fair” features live music, free pet washes and specials at all three businesses.

T.J.Maxx’s new Davis store opened last Sunday at 4621 Second St., next to Target.

Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
