Slow morning here and there’s no news like news in your own neighborhood: The Little Rock City Board agenda this week includes an item for a new bakery/restaurant on Van Buren, just north of War Memorial Stadium.

Hillcrest Little Bakery proposes to rehab structures at 201 and 203 N. Van Buren (one had been a residence, the other once housed a beauty shop and apartment) and make other changes to the property, which had been approved for use some years ago by a food truck.


City staff and the planning commission have approved the proposal.
