Culture on the Cheap
New & Noteworthy: Vanessa Coffee Shop
Despite the recession a lot is going on in south Greenpoint. First there was Boneshakers. Last month it was the revamped Cup Of Joe’s and Lucky Shot. Yesterday it was the Great Mac Off and the good news about Brooklyn Standard. Today I am pleased to announceÂ we have gotten an old-school coffee shop: Vanessa’s.
Unfortunately I had already eaten but curious to know more I went inside. Vanessa’s is a tiny establishment. It seats at most maybe eight people. But the spicy aroma coming from the kitchen was absolutely mouth-watering. I asked the woman behind the counter how long they had been open. She said two weeks. They have not in fact even finalized their take out menu. But as you will see from this working draft they will be serving the usual fare along with some very authentic Mexican food. Color me intrigued!
