Press play, because Pause Cafe just expanded in a big way. The seven-year-old Moroccan-style coffee shop unveiled a larger location mere paces from the original Clinton Street storefront. Indeed, ownership chose to take over the store space left vacant by Paloma Rocket in July 2017, and nearly tripled its footprint. The retail turnaround here was […]
