As previously noted here, a new cafe, barber and bar concept is in the works for 137 Avenue A between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street.
Over the weekend, several EVG readers noted that the space was open for business...
The cafe will be serving coffee and tea as well as a several menu items at breakfast (avocado toast, for example), lunch and dinner. You can find their menu here. They also have a beer-wine license.
The cafe hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday; until 10 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. The hours Saturday and Sunday are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The barber hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. (The barber portion of the business is in the back of the storefront, and there is a wall separating this from the cafe.)
The previous tenant here, Top A Nails, moved next door to No. 139 in May.
