Comings & Goings: More breakfast, lunch, dessert and wine for downtown

It’s time for another update on recent downtown business changes. All of these items have appeared in previous Comings & Goings columns.
————
Beach Hut Deli announced that it’s closing its store downtown and building a new one off Second Street, across from Target. June 1 was 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.
————
Hallmark Inn’s new Café 11o, a breakfast and lunch eatery, will open to hotel guests soon, and to the public a couple of weeks after that. Menu items include oatmeal, Belgian waffles or eggs, served with fruit and Pepper Peddler Coffee. Hotel customers will receive a voucher. Lunches will feature sandwiches, salads and soups.
Next door, two more businesses have signed leases, both part of the hotel’s ground-floor retail expansion. The following hope to open as soon as this fall:
* CREAM (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me), a Bay Area-based ice cream sandwich parlor. Patrons pick the cookie and ice cream flavor and it’s assembled for them. All-natural and gourmet cookies, bars and ice cream also may be purchased separately, along with toppings. Other menu items include shakes, malts and floats. Vegan and gluten-free alternatives are available. For information, visit www.creamnation.com.
* Putah Creek Winery. The hotel has been serving the Davis wine during its happy hour, and winemaker Gene Glaeser planted and maintains the grape vines that grow in the hotel’s courtyard under its mural. Visit its website at putahcreekwinery.com.
————
The Melt should start serving “grilled cheese happiness” in Davis Commons this fall.
Expect a soft opening in late August, with a grand opening in September, once UC Davis classes start. The Bay Area chain usually promotes its grand openings through Facebook, giving fans a password for free food.
Its main menu features five different grilled cheese sandwiches, four soups, and five combos that include soups. Breakfast items are available as well. For details, visit www.themelt.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 it will include a few antiques from Antiques Plus, but the store’s focus will be jewelry. It’s open by appointment for now; with expanded hours to come. Call him at 530-902-3o4o.
————
The monthly Davis Flea Market, which had several locations downtown since it launched in January 2012, found a permanent site just outside of the downtown core. It debuted June 14 at 946 Olive Drive.
The next two events are July 27-28 and Aug. 24-25, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. For more information, visit http://davisfleamarket.org.
