‘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 […]

Tiny Empire Location on Lafayette Street Closes Down (Again)

Two months after a purported “zoning mixup” over the bathroom attracted ire from the Department of Health – resulting in closure – more of the […]

Without much fanfare, mini-cupcake empire Baked by Melissa just re-established itself in SoHo. The new neighborhood outpost debuted Monday afternoon at 63 Spring Street (aka 234 Lafayette), an address that’s seen quite an upheaval in the last year. This kiosk takes the torch from the OG location a few blocks westward, which closed last summer due […]

Tiny Empire Opening NYC Juice Bar on Lafayette Street August 10

Posted July 31, 2015 at 5:18 am

Organic juice bars are spreading around the city unchecked like a plague, seizing that title from the frozen yogurt industry. The eastern border of SoHo will soon add another. Brooklyn-based juicery Tiny Empire is getting larger, expanding to 234 Lafayette Street (corner of Spring). It’s already carved out a chunk of the storefront previously occupied […]
