Worry not, fans of Black Cat Cafe on Rivington Street. Yes, the comfy local favorite has been closed for the last week or so. But it is returning soon enough.
You’ll recall that the owners had been looking to sell the three-year-old business since as early as last August. Brokers were hell-bent on pitching the space. Yet in the end, we’re told that “family partners” took over the cafè. The relaunch will happen early this week, probably within the next couple days.
“The coffee shop is going through some changes (for the better),” the new ownership tells us. “We are changing the concept a little, bringing nicer sandwiches and food. It will take a few weeks to do but we will open this week either way.”
There is a chance, however, that the Black Cat moniker disappears after the reopen. But the decor will reportedly remain intact.
Black Cat LES debuted in November 2013, and quickly attracted a passionate local following.
