Plano TX: Barnes & Noble Kitchen ending short story at Legacy West

Word is Barnes & Noble Kitchen and bookstore has decided to not reopen in Legacy West.

At the Kitchen, Barnes & Noble combined serving food with being a destination for books and reading material.

The B&N Kitchen looked like a cool place, and the food was good on our last visit in early March for a sandwich before the Covid-19 kept everyone from getting out of the house.

This is how B&N billed The Kitchen when it opened about three years ago: “The 9,000 square foot Legacy West new concept store will be a place to relax, discover new books, listen to an author speak and have a glass of wine.”

Shoppers still have Barnes & Noble bookstores locally at Creek Walk Village in Plano on U.S. 75 and 15th Street and in West Plano at Preston and Park.

In Frisco, B&N remains open at Stonebriar Mall on Preston Road.

Firewheel in Garland, and Dallas stores are also operating.

Most in-store events have been canceled because of the Covid-19 virus.

More now than ever, shop local.

Local Business Spotlight: Henry’s Ice Cream #visitPlanoTX

From Henry L. Gentry Jr.
And now for a special announcement from Henry of Henry’s Homemade Ice Cream:
I know it is a tough time in Texas. Should we go out at night to visit our favorite restaurant shop, Great Outdoors Sub Shop, or your Hometown Plano Ice Cream Shop? I say, “Yes.”
I have been in business for 36 Years, and I need a 37th year. Socialize! Our new slogan in Texas should be: Stay Hungry: Shop Restaurants.
Without guests, we are done. Your hometown shops need sales – cash flow, I have 26 employees., and I need a new bow tie. I have ordered in extra spoons and cups— no sharing please. Our Health Department graded us an A on our inspection (again). A – just like my report card in High School.
We have prepared Half gallons and Quarts for pickup. We do not need to fist pump right now. It is an easy quick transaction. We are all winners as I spend this money back into my community. Join me in Eating Out in the Metroplex, and say hello to my great buddy, Joe Covino at Covinos –The man is an institution.
– Henry
Henry’s Homemade Ice Cream shop is situated at near Tom Thumb at Parker Road and 3100 Independence Parkway, north of Plano Senior High School.

Local Business Spotlight: Spoons Cafe, The Garage #visitMcKinneyTX

From Karen Klassen, Spoon’s Cafe in McKinney TX

In the summer of 2004, I found myself pulling the ovens out of my house, taking my KitchenAid mixer and opening Spoons Cafe in Downtown McKinney. I was unemployed, had no money and no experience in the restaurant industry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had an idea that #downtownmckinney needed a small place to grab a great breakfast. Most people thought that I was crazy, but I thought – ‘Hey, I have nothing to lose.’⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Spoons started with a very small menu serving breakfast and lunch. Fun fact: My first pie case actually came from Goodwill and was so small we only served coconut and chocolate pie.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 2008, I built the café as you see it today. Spoons Cafe is now open 7 days a week and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I think has made Spoons Cafe continue to grow over the last 13 years is not only great food but our amazing employees and customers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 2018 I opened the Garage – right behind Spoons. The Garage is a bar and event venue serving craft cocktails and tasty bites. This thoughtfully restored space I’ve found is the perfect place to enjoy food and drinks with friends or to host your next event.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Good food is key to success in the restaurant industry. I also believe that the team you build is important. There are many relationships that have contributed to Spoons Cafe success. Employees are absolutely number one. My first employee is still with me, and many have called Spoons their workplace for 10 years or more.
Spoons Cafe is situated on the square in Historic Downtown McKinney, Texas. Serving comfort food, American favorites and breakfast all day!
