More coffee in Silver Lake: Lamill coming to Silver Lake Blvd.

Thanks to SueBee and her Silverlakeblvd blog for confirming that Lamill Coffee is coming to the former Rubbish store on Silver Lake Blvd...good news for Silver Lake caffeine addicts, bad news for places like the Backdoor Bakery that have been getting away with substandard coffee for years. I had the best cappucino of my life at Lamill's roasting plant last year, so we are really lucky to get both Lamill and Intelligentsia in the hood. And apparently there's a liquor license in the works...booze and coffee both? Now that's a combo I could get into!

Speaking of Silver Lake, could a certain longtime Silver Lake restaurateur whose only restaurant at the moment is farther west be looking to return to the area...possibly to a shuttered spot that closed up but never really moved out? Developing...

such a tease!

i only ever have secret news on The York, 'cause i live right across the street. the inside looks AMAZING and they've ripped out the low cork ceilings and the walls in favor of exposed brick and a vaulted barrel ceiling with beams. i hope they keep it like that...

the whole front was also removed and it looks like they've installed multi-pane pivot windows, much like an old British pub...

hope this means good things!

I hear a liquor license has been applied for, does that mean a deal has been inked.

i can say that i heard Nick from Nick's in Beverly Hills might be moving back to Silver Lake. Where not sure, and what not sure either. But it could be a reincarnation of LA Nicola's which was a wonderful spot now occupied by Malo on Sunset. what else does anyone know???

I was thinking of Chameau, which used to be next to Body Builder's gym and had incredible food. They moved about two years ago... come back!!!
