The ‘Triple Shot World Atlas Cafe’ on Clinton Street Hasn’t Been Open Lately
As one coffee shop opens along the Clinton Street corridor – Me & Terri bowed over the weekend – another longtimer appears on shaky ground. The java joint formally known as the Triple Shot World Atlas Cafe hasn’t been open for the last few weeks, several readers point out. The only official announcement onsite is a month-old reference to updated winter hours starting December 13. Otherwise, mum is the word.
It’s almost as if the seven-year-old shop was packed up – chairs and sandwich board – and left for good.
No one from Atlas responded to our email requests for comment, and the phone lines go unanswered. Their Long Island City outpost is equally out of service according to the answering machine.
This doesn’t bode well, with all signs pointing toward permanent closure.
This Triple Shot import opened at 37 Clinton Street back in 2010, and always seemed like a popular choice for locals. When open, they served H&H bagels, sandwiches, paninis, and coffee.
