Ch-ch-changes...

Odd to walk by the shuttered iconic building at the corner of Liberty and Main that used to be the Parthenon. That place was around forever, seems like. Can't say I had unforgettable Greek meals, nor particularly charming service there. Servers had a "You talkin to me?" way of moping over to the table, as if having to serve you a Greek salad would just about ruin their day.

But onward now to the new home for Cafe Habana. Kinda exciting. With the tackiness stripped away from the front of the Parthenon's cornerstone structure, some good old bones are showing in the facade. Think faded Havana elegance. I hope the menu rises to match what could be a stunning spot.

Elsewhere in town, Zingerman's Deli expansion is moving right along. And on April 21, Sweet Heather Anne bakery opened a new shop at 920 N. Main to peddle lovely little cupcakes and cookies along with charismatically electic, often even off-kilter special-occasion cakes. Check out the website for http://www.sweetheatheranne.com for a taste of that style.

Speaking of cake websites, Cakes by Rubina, which bakes out of Main Dish on Jackson Rd., says, "We launched our new online shopping cart and are ready to ship nationally our decadent cake truffles and mouth-watering coffee cakes, all freshly baked." See http://www.shop.cakesbyrubina.com/ for some good deals on shipping charges.
