Reader report: bakery-coffee shop in the works for 68 Avenue A

[Bobby Williams]

Here along the stretch of empty Avenue A storefronts between East Fifth Street and East Fourth Street... a reader tells us that a bakery/coffee shop is in the works for the space with the brown paper over the windows... the cafe will be taking just part of the space left vacant when East Village Pharmacy lost their lease and moved down the block...

The cafe looks to be called Croissanteria at 68 Avenue A... and they're on the August CB3/SLA docket for a beer-wine license ... the meeting will take place on Aug. 20. We'll have more on the August docket later...

In other words- another wine bar.

Just because somebody has to say it - why the hell does a bakery need a liquor license? Jane's Sweet Buns all over again? Pulheese!

Mama's on 3rd near B closed today (or is closing tomorrow). That's too bad. It was a good neighborhood spot. Well, at least (what will likely be) a fancy bakery is pretty much the same things

....and Goog's new word for neighborhood is fiberhood

....and water running downhill from a rain barrell is rainscaping
