Spotted at 1011 Manhattan Avenue: Windows

After a long wait the paint is finally coming off the windows at 1011 Manhattan Avenue. Intrigued, I finally asked the folks behind this reputed coffee-shop-to-be what gives. Here’s the low-down:

  1. This establishment will serve coffee and pastries in the morning and wine, beer and “small food plates” in the evening.
  2. They plan on opening around the end of the month.
  3. The cat I spied peering out the front door recently is named “Sooti” and her sinecure as “shop cat” was merely temporary. She now resides in an air conditioned apartment upstairs!

So there have you.

Miscellaneous Notes on the Greenpoint Food & Drink Front

Although this is a ways off, I want to pass it along. Those of you who might have wondered what is going on at 195 Nassau Avenue (as seen above), today I got the scoop! Cody Utzman, the man behind Brooklyn Standard and Papasitos is going to open a wine Bar there! Cafe Royalle (as its name indicates) will be serving up fare with distinctively French twist. Cody told me that he guesstimates it will be open for business in “about two months”. That may seem like a ways off, but I assure you it will be upon us soon enough!

Lastly, I suspect I speak for a number of my fellow north ‘Pointers when I write that Jubilatka has had some downright mouth-watering cakes in their front window of late. Today I finally broke down and asked about them. Here’s the deal:


  1. This powdered sugar spritzed castle is chocolate brownie/ginger bread cake.
  2. This is conventional babka with a topping of assorted fruit.
  3. These are chocolate babka.

All of the previous cost a measly $12.00. Speaking as someone who is not especially talented when it comes to making baked goods, I know where I will be buying my Christmas dessert this year!

Brownie and ginger bread. Yum!
