Bricia in 2018

August 2018

The team behind three-year-old Clancey on Clinton Street is readying a new cafe just a few paces north.

Dubbed Biggie’s Cafe, the establishment takes over 79 Clinton Street. Expect another casual eatery similar to its failed predecessors.

Our request for comment on menu and opening date was not immediately returned.

Recall that this cornershop formerly housed Bricia for three years, albeit open to the public for one. It closed last August after seizure by City Marshals. And before that, it was Marm Cafe.
