When Dutton'sclosed the Brentwood store in April, there were some serious rumblings that a new development and even--gasp!--condos would replace the property that housed the beloved independent bookstore. Neighbors can rest easy now: We just got word that Caffe Luxxe will open its second location there. The Yelpers are kind of crazy about the Caffe Luxxe on Montana in Santa Monica, which opened in 2006, and this may be the Westside equivalent of Intelligentsia (to some degree). That is, until Intelligentsia opens in Venice. Still, a locally owned, indpendent cafe is probably easier for the Brentwoodites to swallow than, say, another Starbucks. Expect a mid-October debut.(Photo Credit)
