Corktown will have another new breakfast, brunch, and lunch spot opening, and this one is right next to Mudgie's Deli.
is a new concept by sisters Sarrah Willoughby and Rai Jackson. Opening later this fall, La Villa will offer an alternative twist on breakfast and lunch fare.
While Corktown is not without its casual breakfast and lunch spots – like Mudgie's, Brooklyn Street Local, Le Petit Zinc, Astro Coffee, and the soon-to-open Detroit Institute of Bagels
– La Villa will target more of the specialty breakfast crowd: think more along the lines of popular suburban spots like Toast in Ferndale or Mae's in Pleasant Ridge.
The sisters have been cooking and entertaining together all their lives and have often heard compliments on their cooking end with, "You should open a restaurant." Now they are putting the final touches on their own space at 1411 Brooklyn, which will include dine-in seating for about 35 people, a separate 30-person café-style seating area for those just getting coffee and hanging out, and an additional outdoor patio.
While the menu will include both breakfast and lunch items, their specialties include items like Strawberry Cream Rose Pancakes and Paradise French Toast made with coconut milk and pineapple.
Renovation work is almost complete and they are finalizing the last necessary details they need in order to open. They hope to be open by late October.
