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 quickly made waves.

Local startup Sourced Adventures – which also maintains an office on premise at The Yard – opened “Adventure Cafe” back in July. The coffee window pulls double duty as travel agency of sorts, where customers can learn more about its “outdoorsy” getaway trips. During the summer, they also organized a shuttle to the Rockaways. But it took the crew three months to finally install more permanent illuminated signage and eye-grabbing sidewalk presence.

Current adventures on the docket for October include local camping, wine tasting, and paintball. So says the sandwich board.
