Tim Hortons/Cold Stone Creamery Combo Opens at East Houston
203 East Houston takes its coffee with cream.
The short block of East Houston between Orchard and Ludlow has seen some significant turnover between in the last year. Two vacancy conversions and one business sale transpired here. Empanada Mama opened its express outpost and the Lobster Joint took over from Lina Frey and revealed a namesake marquee. Over the weekend, however, it was the Tim Hortons/Cold Stone combo that finally joined the land of the living.
Temporary banner signage preceded the opening by a couple days.
That’s more corporate competition for local coffee shops and ice cream parlors in the vicinity. Weigh in – is their inaugural Lower East Side location good for the neighborhood?
