Down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass, and across from the Coleman skatepark, a new cafe just debuted. It’s the first business of its kind at the eastern terminus of Monroe Street. Little Chair is now seated.

As previously reported, the ownership behind Forgtmenot and Kiki’s – two Division Street businesses that have become locals for the locals – is running the show here at Little Chair. In fact, the new establishment seems to channel a similar aesthetic as its sister ventures, taking on a living room vibe with plenty of scattered tchotchkes. Decor is classic, boasting an exposed look with checkered floors, living room couch, and an old organ.

Little Chair serves La Colombe brew and teas alongside a bite-sized menu consisting of, among other things, sandwiches, salads, spinach pie, grilled cheese, ham and cheese, croissants, and other baked goods (soft-serve ice cream coming soon). Everything is under $10.

Below is a snapshot of the full offering:

CitizenM and the Bowery Bottleneck
