The saga of Willo(w) House may finally be ending...one can only hope. You can read all about it over at New Times blog. But that's not why I'm here.
Coming home last night I saw the former WH building, which has been spruced up and looking all sorts of cute inside - furniture is all there, pastry cabinets are in. The butcher paper was finally removed to reveal the new name, Hob Nobs.
There's been a buzz about it in the neighborhood for the past month. Those of us within walking distance are clammering for good local coffee with a nice comfortable vibe that we feel good about strolling the kids and dogs to.
That being said, they will have to compete with Copper Star for my coffee dollar, but I'm happy there's something coming back to that location.
I feel like those women in the old Mervyn's commercials who would sit with their noses pressed against the door waiting for the store to open: "Open. Open. Open."
