After more than 25 years in business, Lily’s Café has changed very little – if at all.

Tucked in a nook at the Point Dume Village across the walkway from Bank of Books, the cozy café was originally a doughnut shop until the early 1980s, when an 18-year-old Lily Castro acquired the venue and began its transition to a restaurant. 

“Little by little, I made this place a restaurant by adding burritos, hamburgers and tacos to our menu,” Castro said. “My vision was to make this restaurant a family business, and it worked.”

A new consignment shop in Malibu opened last week, offering a mixture of vintage and modern items to spice up buyers’ lives.

CoCo Consign is the creation of co-owners Liza Whitcraft and Kristen Nelson, and the shop provides an opportunity for Malibu residents to buy or sell their modern or antique vintage clothing, glasswear, art, furniture and other such items.

“There may also be Malibu residents who have a great amount of Hollywood history that they can bring to the public at our shop,” Whitcraft said.

When people ask Malibu resident Fred Walecki if he’s a luthier, he likes to tell them flatly that he’s been thinking about becoming a Presbyterian.
He’ll let the joke rest for a second or two, which is more or less the amount of time it takes for a bright, wide smile to betray his deadpan humor.

“His was a voice that had its own footnotes,” Douglas Kmiec, Our Lady of Malibu parishioner, said with a laugh that reverberated through the crowd that filled the movie theater, as his fellow parishioners and neighbors watched Kmiec on screen at the premier of “Radical Kindness: The Life of John Sheridan,” a film documenting OLM’s Mongsignor, the late John V. Sheridan.
