Lilac Patisserie is opening a location at 1209 Coast Village Road, the former home of Mesa Burger, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, and Tutti’s. I paid them a visit and noticed that construction is in full swing, with most of the new drywall added, and some painting going on. A new floor still needs to be laid and some pillars are being refitted. A new coat of white paint was being rolled on to the outside of the building while I was there. Expect an opening late this year or early next.
