‘Brooklyn Diamond’ Coffee will Shine where Tiny Empire Failed on Lafayette Street

Posted April 21, 2017 at 5:19 am

Where one Brooklyn business failed, another is giving it a go. And this one, a contribution to “Latte Lane.” Brooklyn Diamond is making its way to the eastern fringe of SoHo. The misnomer of a coffee shop has grand plans for 234 Lafayette Street, its second location in Manhattan, and third overall. From the about […]

‘Lena Coffee’ Spinoff will Open at Gentrified 135 Eldridge Street 

Posted March 10, 2017 at 5:00 am

Now that 135 Eldridge Street is sufficiently upscaled (nay, gentrified), the mess of scaffolding and construction materials is gone from the block. In its place, posters advertising the remodeled retail units for suitors more befitting the “new” Lower East Side. And the first taker is here. In due course, the Greenwich Village-based Lena Coffee will […]

As one coffee shop opens along the Clinton Street corridor – Me & Terri bowed over the weekend – another longtimer appears on shaky ground. The java joint formally known as the Triple Shot World Atlas Cafe hasn’t been open for the last few weeks, several readers point out. The only official announcement onsite is […]

‘Café Integral’ to Open Nicaraguan Coffee Shop at Former Elizabeth Street Laundromat

Posted August 4, 2016 at 5:00 am

At the corner of Kenmare and Elizabeth Streets, where laundromats previously ruled, a specialty cafe will soon sprout. Nolita Cleaning Company, the self-proclaimed “premiere cleaning company” of its namesake neighborhood, vanished from the commercial landscape without a trace earlier this summer. The newcomer had replaced the long-running Zippy Cleaners at 149 Elizabeth Street, but barely […]

Black Cat LES on Rivington Street to Reopen this Week with New Management and Menu

Posted June 13, 2016 at 5:10 am

Worry not, fans of Black Cat Cafe on Rivington Street. Yes, the comfy local favorite has been closed for the last week or so. But it is returning soon enough. You’ll recall that the owners had been looking to sell the three-year-old business since as early as last August. Brokers were hell-bent on pitching the […]

Lost Weekend Coffee Shop Closes Down After 5 Years on Orchard Street

Posted February 1, 2016 at 5:10 am

It was a Lost Weekend for the brand. Permanently. As expected, Lost Weekend shuttered after five years on Orchard Street. Coffee shop owner Michael Little packed up the surf boards and equipment for the last time, emptying the premises for good over the weekend. Obligatory paper window treatments are firmly in place with a spray-painted […]

Brooklyn’s Brunswick Cafe Shutters Clinton Street Location

Last modified December 1, 2015 at 11:33 am

First Rosella, then Brunswick; both gone within two years on Clinton Street. Bluebird principal Alex Hall, who’s also behind both Java joints, is done with 23 Clinton Street. His latest cafe concept – Brooklyn import Brunswick – failed to gain traction with the Lower East Side community. The establishment is now officially closed after barely seven […]

Adventure Cafe Officially Makes Its Presence Known at The Yard on Delancey Street

Last modified October 16, 2015 at 1:22 pm

That strange food mashup, Bruffin Cafe, bailed 85 Delancey Street last winter. It had occupied the sliver of a footprint at the entrance to The Yard’s Lower East Side co-working space, but failed to gain a huge following. Well, after sitting empty for months, another java slinger took up the spot over the summer and […]
