‘SHNY’ on Suffolk Street Morphs Into New Cafe Called ‘Mr. Rapidan’

Some five months into its tenure at 116 Suffolk Street, Spreadhouse is changing its tune. Or should we say, taste. The short-lived SHNYcreative space” is no more, instead having morphed into a new cafe concept called “Mr. Rapidan.” The changeover was swift, happening just last week.

Apparently Mr. Rapidan is pulling double duty, acting as cafe during the day and switching it up as a cevicheria at night. We are told that the cafe will open at 7am and remains open through dinner hours. No concrete menu just yet.

It’s worth noting that Mr. Rapidan is also the name of a fly used by fisherman in the wild (i.e. fishing tackle).
