Cafe Grumpy Should Open Next Week at 13 Essex
The Lower East Side iteration of Cafe Grumpy is currently cooking on slow simmer down at 13 Essex Street. Progress remains steady, but slow. In early April, the kitchen-slash-bakery half of the retail footprint was activated with the express purpose of cooking and supplying the other three satellite locations in the tri-state area.

KR spoke with the construction crew charged with renovating the cafe itself, and learned that launch should be sometime next week. But that “they keep saying next week.” There you have it – the phrase “next week” is actually just a euphemism for “sometime in the near future so stop bugging me already.”
Indeed, the much-anticipated cafe was originally slated to open at the end of May.
