I'll be in Troy next month, if I'm close by the area and it's open by then (I can't remember when your target date is...), I'll certainly try to check it out. ^_^x

Yep, I had a meeting with Cadillac Coffee yesterday, and they are going to set up my coffee bar for me.

I assume you're going to be open year-round? It's very hard to find an ice cream parlor in Michigan open in January. I'm usually stuck going to National Coney Island and getting a hot fudge cream puff, but sometimes nothing beats a hand-dipped cone.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Yep, will be open year round.


As a side note to something I said in another reply, when I stated that I would make the burgers fresh in the morning. I meant that I would be portioning out the beef for the burgers. I wont be precooking them or anything.

As of thursday, my place is open. So far its just the ice cream parlor. The coffee will be added sometime next week. The kitchen will be open by the end of December.

What brand of ice cream? It's important, you know! Coffee in yet? We'll need to stop by this weekend maybe.

Let me know if you need a line on real Kona coffee ever. The 100%, not the 10% mix.

Added new pics of my place fully finished and open for business (minus the kitchen, which will be awhile yet).

Menu looks good to me so far. Reasonable too (not that I'd know anymore). I see burgers and fries coming soon, where's the coneys?
aloha

P.S. The menu sign - always been curious - so does Coke give those for free?

Yeah, coke gives em for free to commercial accounts.

As for the Coneys, they are comin too, just not a whole lotta room on the board to list everything thats coming. Ill have a seperate menu for the kitchen stuff.

I am curious. I dont know if your able to elaborate on how much a little place like that costs to run. Cause I have always wanted to start some kind of restaurant or bar. Something just small where you can hang out. Something like Cheers or the Peach Pit. HAHA Peach Pit.

I hate People who have a signature.

Well OK then......I'll be back in town the end of next July and expect everything to be up and running. I'll be writing a review here upon return.
