2 new coffee choices for you



Dave on 7th reports that C&B (Coffee and Breakfast) had a sneak preview Saturday morning here at 178 E. Seventh St. just west of Avenue B.

Ali the owner (who previously worked hung out at 7A see comments) was handing out free coffee. Dave on 7th said that it is a great space.

Not sure of an official opening date just yet. The space was previously home to Korzo Haus, which closed at the end of October.

Meanwhile on East 10th Street (No. 280) between Avenue A and First Avenue…



Cafe Silan, which has a variety of coffee and house-made pastries with natural sweeteners (like silan, a Middle-Eastern date paste), is now in soft-open mode.

BoweryBoogie, who first noted this arrival back in November, reported that the former manager of Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop is one of the proprietors behind this new venture.

Man cannot live on coffee alone. No food, pole shift, no sun, poisoned water, air, soil, frozen northern hemisphere, end times.

I know we all like to bitch about the ever-proliferating juice bars, but is all this fucking coffee really necessary either? This is the second coffee story today and it's only 7:30 am.

Back in the early 90's the coffee craze began and you could not spit without hitting a new espresso bar. Within 10 years most of those places closed and big corporate coffee apparently won the day. Could this be the return of the mom and pop (most likely one of their kids) coffee? Has Starbucks finally lost it's "cool" factor amongst the iPhone set?

Nothing will ever beat Central Perk.

I never worked at 7A, but I was a regular there. Just so we don't offend anyone.

Sorry about that Ali!

Looking forward to stopping by. All the best...

Think Silan is closed for good :(
Was not open today and a neighbor said, "they're gone". They had good coffee at a good price and a nice rewards program, sad to see them go.
