We've heard rumors about it for months, but now it's official: The B29 Streatery food truck is on the market. An offshoot of Dustan Bristol's popular Nampa eatery Brick 29 Bistro, the Streatery was a pioneer in Boise's food truck renaissance. On Craigslist, B29 is seeking $95,000 for the "baddest truck around," a 2003 Freightliner MT-45.
The listing reads: "Consulting with purchase of truck. Possible purchase of brand. Locations to park truck included as well."
Bristol's new gourmet grab-and-go concept, On the Fly, will open on the second story of the Eighth and Main Tower.
In other opening news, the WinCo complex between Front and Myrtle streets is getting a new tenant. A banner in the window of a former flower shop proclaims that Java Culture Coffee Co. is coming soon. More info: javaculturecoffeeco.com.
In more coffeeshop opening news, Aero Caffe is now open at Orchard and Bethel streets. Owner Weldon Stutzman leveled the formerly vacant building at 201 N. Orchard St. and built the shop from the ground up.
Three giant, remote control airplanes hang from the small cafe's ceiling--all hand-crafted by Stutzman's father-in-law--and the espresso counter serves a selection of signature roasts from Idaho Roasting Company. Snacks include quiche and coffeecake from Dhondalicious, and croissants and pinwheels from Rolling in Dough. The cafe boasts WiFi and a meeting nook. For more info, call 208-995-2913.
