Just a quick look around Caffe Luxxe's new neighbor, cake doctor Nothing Bundt Cakes. Sheesh, so many new bakeries on Montana, hello Valen Dolce, Sweet Lady Jane, and now this kid. Anyway, according to a contractor on site, owners behind this chain plan to open another half dozen or so outposts, additional bakeries are under construction in Tustin, Sherman Oaks, and a search is underway for a Beverly Hills shop as well. As for Santa Monica, this cookie cutter cafe is perfectly ready to open save for a few minor interior touches, unfortunately permitting and such is holding up the debut.
