Workers unveil vintage sign
Workers who are in the midst of reinventing the former Tillie’s diner on Webster Street made a surprising find: A vintage sign painted by the owners of a dairy that once resided there.
West Alameda Business Association Executive Director Kathy Moehring told the Planning Board on Monday that she’s working with local preservationists to remove the sign, which memorializes a 1938 State Fair win, with the hope that it can be displayed in the Alameda Museum.
The building, at 1500 Webster, is set to become Café Jolie, a French bistro. More on that as opening day approaches.
Also on Webster, United Market & Flowers has opened in part of the old Webster Pharmacy space on the corner of Webster and Lincoln. In addition to snacks, Asian specialties, flowers and some produce, they’ve got gift items and jewelry.
Meanwhile, long-awaited Scolari’s Good Eats is open for business. The restaurant, which is next door to Lucky 13 on the corner of Park and Encinal, offers an eclectic menu that includes burger and links, antipasto, meatballs, padron peppers, summer squash crostini and more.
