The Little Bird, the vegan cafe that opened on Avenue B near 11th Street last June, appears to be shuttered. The phone has been disconnected. We contacted one of the owners via e-mail, though haven't heard back. This is seemingly a tough space to make work. The previous tenant, Panache Cafe, lasted just four months. And before this, Cafe de Nova.
Maybe it's — in part — the competition... you have B Cup Café on the corner of 13th Street... and Ninth Street Espresso around the corner on 10th Street (and not to mention their location on Ninth Street and Avenue C...).
