From its fresh-squeezed orange juice to its house-roasted corned beef, the new Jen’s 7th Avenue Café in Prescott Valley has an “everything’s fresh” motto.

The café — located at the 6800 E. Highway 69 site of the former 7th Ave. Auto Parts — opened in early March, and installed its signs last week.

Owner Jen Greene, who grew up in a restaurant family, said she is putting her decades of restaurant background to work in the breakfast-and-lunch spot.

“I make everything in-house,” Greene said. “Our specialties are our amazing corned beef hash, and our French toast made from brioche. We’re known for ‘everything’s fresh.’ ”

The café features 18 tables and a 10-seat counter inside, and will soon add four to six tables on the outdoor patio. Jen’s 7th Ave. Café is open from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays.

New 200-unit apartment complex will replace abandoned Dells View Mobile Home Park

A ground-breaking is expected later this month on a new luxury-apartment complex at the 7.5-acre site of the old Dells View Mobile Home Park off Willow Lake Road in Prescott.

First up will be removal of the dilapidated mobile homes that are still on the site. “We’ll have a ground-breaking once the site is cleared,” developer Michael Lafferty said last week.

Once complete, the new Dells View Apartments will feature 48 studios, 102 one-bedroom, and 50 two-bedroom units, Lafferty said, adding that the complex will be built in two phases over the next 20 months.

Complex amenities will include a clubhouse, party room, meeting room, mail room, exercise room, heated swimming pool, dog park, and fitness trail.

The project value is estimated at $32 million, and will create about 100 jobs at the maximum peak of construction, Lafferty said. Apartment rental rates are still to be determined, based on market demands, he added.
