Despite the proverbial wipeout, former Lost Weekend proprietor Michael Little is getting back up, so to speak. He’s headed just a couple blocks south to open another surf-style coffee shop, albeit on a much smaller scale. This time piggybacking off a popular neighborhood boutique.

Meet Pintail Coffee, now serving in the front entrance of Georgia’s Vintage at 27 Orchard Street. (Pintail is a reference to a design of surfboard.) The womenswear shop closed briefly last week to build out the coffee counter. By weekend, it was officially ready.

Yes, Pintail Coffee is now open, and offers a menu of six beverages, including espresso, cappuccino, cold brew, and tea. Brew is courtesy of Brooklyn-based Parlor Coffee. Drinks are all priced $4 and below.

The seventh option for sale, however, is a nod to the surfer roots – surfboard fins.

The arrival of Pintail Coffee marks roughly two months since the departure of Lost Weekend. That stint lasted five years at Orchard Street. A leasing sign still acts as tombstone signage in the windows; the space is going for $9,000 in monthly rent.
