The opening of all-day cafe Mr. West at the University Village shopping mall, which was originally scheduled for July 4, is delayed. Co-owner Henri Schock says the team is making a push toward the finish line, but didn’t give an updated opening timeline. The new restaurant will be a combination wine bar and daytime cafe in the former home of the Mrs. Cook’s kitchen supplies store.

Like the downtown original, Mr. West will encourage diners to bring a laptop and order an espresso, or share a bottle of wine and a charcuterie plate with friends. Other menu selections will include coffee cocktails, egg sandwiches, wine-based spirits, curried avocado toast, salads, and beer.

The cafe (2685 NE University Village St.) is building several seating options, including a patio with a fireplace and plants aplenty. Inside, there will be bistro tables and a wine bar. If the ambience at the downtown location is any indication, this new outpost will serve as a charming, plant-filled respite from the busy shopping center.
