On the corner of 4th and Santa Monica, in Santa Monica, a Leonidas Chocolate Cafe is being built. When I first mentioned this here, no one seemed to know exactly what the cafe part of that meant. Well, while the construction still has a ways to go, a sign on the door of the place is advertising for baristas. So, it appears that there will be a cafe - whether there will be numerous Leonidas-themes special drinks remains to be seen.
The possibilities for paying obeisance to a sweet tooth in Santa Monica look to be increasing rapidly with Leonidas and Le Pain Quotidien across the street coming in at aorund the same time.
