Exciting Changes in La Mesa Village!

La Mesa Village is undergoing quite the transformation, and within the next year, several fun new restaurants, bakeries, breweries, and coffee houses are slated to open.

 

A brewery and beercade called CoinHaus has already opened, which offers self-service beer & wine taps alongside traditional stand-up arcade games...all of which can be paid for with the swipe of a wrist - a preloaded payment band that looks like a watch.

Farmer's Table is a farm-to-table concept that will be taking over the location that San Phillipo's occupied for 30 some-odd years, which closed its doors for the final time at the end of June.  We were all sad to see our neightborhood staple go, but the owner simply felt that she was getting on in age and wanted to enjoy a simple, quiet retirement.

The new spot will strive to let the natural flavors in food be dominant, and keep dishes simple, fresh, healthy, but still delicious. They will also serve beer and wine.

Fourpenny House is another restaurant & brewery coming to the Village this fall. It will specialize in bread, beer, and spirits.  They will "feature a rotating seasonal menu using fresh ingredients at the prime of their flavor". And they will have such delectable offering as "charcuterie and cheeses, savory entrees like pizzas and sandwiches, and dessert".

BLVD Noodles

BLVD Noodles

This one is a bit mysterious, it has occupied a space in the heart of the Village for at least six months - I believe that they got held up by the insane procedure of getting a building permit, but they seem to have finally commenced construction. It is rumored to be Asian fusion cuisine.

Public Square Coffee House is taking over the location that Cosmo's was in. I don't know a lot about what their specific angle will be, but I do know that their facebook and instagram accounts have some pretty awesome photos of the work they're doing with the space.

Right next to Johnny B's, where Don Keating's Auto Repair was, will soon be under construction for a retail/residential building that will house Surf Rider Pizza Cafe and Bakery on the ground level, and an 8-unit condo complex on the upper levels, to be called BLVD 8.

 

Surf Rider Pizza has a location on Abbott Street in OB, and serves pizza and sandwiches, among other dishes, and a variety of baked goods.

Sheldon's Service Station

On the other side of Johnny B's, just to the North where the British Shoppe was, a fun little cafe is underway that is getting back to the roots of the original building.

 

In the 1930's in that very spot, there was a gas station called Sheldon's Service Station, which they decided to make the premise of the new eatery.  They plan to serve specialty coffees along with cafe style fare.  They will also serve beer and wine in the afternoons and evenings.
