Temple Coffee will add a location in Davis, its fourth overall, reports Wendy Weitzel in the Davis Enterprise.
It’s official. Temple Fine Coffee and Tea officials signed a lease Monday to be the anchor tenant of the new building going in at Third and G streets...
While the coffeehouse will take about two-thirds of the ground floor, Ruebner still needs to fill the remainder of the building. Temple’s reputation should be a draw, he said. Roughly 800 square feet of retail space is left fronting Third Street, as well as 2,500 of office space upstairs, which could be divided.
Now they can focus on construction, he said, which could be complete in the spring. An optimistic timeline would have Temple opening in May or June.
In the same story, Weitzel reports that Old Soul appears to be having issues with its Davis location.
Meanwhile, the owners for another popular Sacramento coffeehouse, Old Soul Co., are mum on what appear to be stalled lease negotiations for a new café at the former Little Prague space on G Street. It would be less than a block away from Temple. Broker Jim Gray of Cassidy/Turley Commercial Real Estate Services said Thursday, “Wish I had good news. But at this moment I have no news.”

Winters Brew: Berryessa Brewing Co. reaps the benefits of committed regulars but may soon face growing pains - On hot summer weekends, a 20-barrel brewery west of Winters overflows with patrons. They flood the taproom and crowd around shaded picnic tables, sipping beer while soaking in live music. A few kids play baseball in the gravel lot. Others pull wooden blocks from an oversized Jenga set by the food truck. Some are locals, but many come from Davis, Sacramento and beyond to get a taste of whatever Berryessa Brewing Co. has on tap for the week. This scene is nothing new to brewmaster Chris Miller. The place has been packed every weekend since he opened the taproom two years ago and began selling his signature brews on-site. For this reason, Miller is a hard man to catch.

Granola Girl launching nutrition-packed food truck in November - The words “food truck” and “healthy” rarely go together. Yet locally-grown business Granola Girl is going the mobile route, bringing good eats to Sacramento yogis and juice cleansers in mid-November. Among the truck offerings: granola bowls with homemade almond milk; superfood smoothies; veggie and fruit juice; and plant-based sandwiches. It’s not a de facto vegan, gluten-free truck, but a lot of the options are vegan and gluten-free. Janelle Bitker in Sac News & Review.
Rubio’s New Sustainable Shrimp Tacos - While I’ve always been a fan of Rubio’s shrimp tacos, I recently made a lifestyle change that prohibits me from eating non-sustainable meat. As you can imagine, this modification eliminated many of my favorite quick lunch/dinner stops. However, I was thoroughly impressed upon walking into Rubio’s and learning that the brand is diligently working to expand its menu with innovative recipes, ranging from sustainable shrimp tacos to Atlantic salmon burritos, sustainable tilapia items and much more.
