Cafe Grumpy moved the kitchen equipment from its sidecar annex at 13 Essex Street last week. The space that once housed an on-premise bakery is apparently now a destination for pop-ups.

The first contender is a co-sponsored Valentine’s Day event with Sean Casey Animal Rescue. In particular, a “Pet Snuggle and Adoption Event.” Sorta channels that whole Meow Parlour vibe from just around the corner.

Here are more details of the event, scheduled for Saturday, 12-5pm. One thing is for sure; Venkman wouldn’t be too thrilled about cats and dogs living together…

Cats and dogs from Brooklyn’s Sean Casey Animal Rescue will be on hand at Café Grumpy’s Lower East Side location for snuggling and adopting. Grab a delicious coffee at our cafe then sit and snuggle a cat or walk a dog, and snap a few pics with our fluffy guests of honor- you may find true love!

All the cats and dogs will be available for adoption.

Limited edition mugs designed by artist L’amour Supreme and Brooklyn-based street wear brand Mishka and donuts from Brooklyn’s Heirloom Vegan Eatery will be on sale during the event.

Each adopter will receive a free Mishka limited edition mug and all visitors will be eligible to win raffle prizes from Sean Casey and their supporters.

A percentage of all café and merchandise sales will go to Sean Casey Animal Rescue.

Meanwhile, it’s unclear at the moment whether Grumpy’s will reoccupy the bakery for its java operations anew. “We’re still deciding and feeling out a few options,” Brand Manager Lisa Lyons tells us.

Either way, we hope they scrub it down if the next use is for food, prep, or otherwise…

Cafe Grumpy opened the Lower East Side location in the spring of 2011.
