Creffle’s Crumble on Stanton Street Leads to ‘CcaSSa’ Cafe

Posted on: November 29th, 2018 at 5:07 am by

There is movement anew at 115 Stanton Street, where a gimmicky cafe concept went belly up nearly four years ago.

Ever since the Creffle Cafe – named for its failed signature dessert – closed in February 2015, the store has been shuttered with shades drawn. It barely survived three months. But now the replacement is here, and is most certainly a long time coming.

Faux newspaper clippings in the windows the last several weeks tipped off the arrival of CcaSSa. The tiny new hangout, featuring a short menu of hot and cold beverages, is currently in soft-open mode.

There had been momentary chatter a couple years ago that Creffle would return to 115 Stanton after its disastrous first attempt. Ownership indicated as much at the time, noting they would introduce a new concept. It was not to be.
