The coffeehouse that once was called Dilworth Coffee and then became Dilworth Espresso and then got sued is now called … Kenilworth Espresso.
– This fall, the owner of Dilworth Coffee got upset when the new owner of his old coffeehouse on East Boulevard changed the name to Dilworth Espresso.
– The problem? The use of the word “Dilworth.” So he sued.
– Despite saying that nobody owns the name Dilworth and that he should be able to use it, the owner of the new shop decided to just change the name to Kenilworth Espresso.
– Lawsuit is now dropped.
– “I have a lot of good customers and I think he’ll continue to have good customers. It’s good coffee weather right now.” – Dilworth Coffee founder Don Keen.
That Dilworth coffee fight has cooled off http://t.co/4Fw5VEjlZO

Glad it all got resolved. What really impresses us, though, is that Kenilworth Espresso already has a YouTube promo up:
