The biggest news (if you live or work in Uptown/University section of NOLA): La Divina Gelateria is opening a full-service cafe location on the Loyola University campus, inside Carrollton Residence Hall. According to La Divina:
“We are opening on the 22nd at Loyola. We’ll have our full cafe there with panini, coffee, gelato & pastries. AND, we’ll be adding a daily pasta special to the menu as well. I hope to post our menu here (on Facebook) today…
We’ll be open… from 11am -midnight M -R, and 11am -2am Fri & Sat, Sun 11am – 10pm. We look forward to seeing you on campus!”
So friend La Divina on Facebook to keep up with the latest info. I, for one, will be happily standing in line for a properly made cappucino at 11 am on August 22nd.
And in other news: Pinkberry is set to open a downtown location on August 20th. Downtown Pinkberry will occupy a storefront in the 300 block of Canal Street, adjacent to the Doubletree Hotel.
