From The New York Shitty Inbox: More About The Garden Spot Cafe
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
I recently noted that 159 Franklin Street, formerly known as the Greenpoint Coffee House, appeared to be nearing completion. Well, according to an email I received it would appear I was right! A tipster we’ll call “Cat” writes:
…you had asked about updates for the Garden Spot Cafe, which will open in the location of the former Greenpoint Coffee House. Jeff, the owner of both the building and the new cafe (who is also the manager for the building where I live) told me yesterday that he expects to open soon, possibly within a month. From what he told me, it sounds like the cafe will serve standard American fare and will have a full liquor license. In my own self interest I asked of there would be some vegetarian selections and he said yes. I’m not sure how much publicity he is looking for at this point or if he has a whole PR campaign planned, but Jeff is a nice guy and a lifelong resident of Greenpoint so I hope he gets the word out soon and does well in his latest Greenpoint endeavor.
So there have you.
