Three restaurant updates
The business includes a tiny grocery area that sells items such as farm-fresh lettuce, all-natural beef, farm-made cheeses, all-natural jellies and condiments and in-season vegetables. It also stocks a few necessities, such as toilet paper and lip balm. The deli has a few seats along the window, but there’s more seating in the space next door, which Coln also owns. Hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. For more information, call 316-260-2523.
