Back in July, a tipster told us that a coffee shop was taking the middle of the three new storefronts at the Shops of East Fifth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue.
This sign arrived earlier this month for Southern Cross Coffee...
We were waiting to learn a little more about the operation. Here are details via the Southern Cross Coffee Facebook page:
The name Southern Cross Coffee is in honor of the Southern Cross constellation, which is visible primarily in the southern hemisphere and sometimes as far up as 20 degrees north latitude. Our founders were both born in the southern hemisphere, where the constellation is very much a part of our cultures.
Grab a great cup of locally roasted coffee and quick bite at Southern Cross Coffee. Natural foods and espresso made the traditional Italian way.
Jamie the check-cashing guy previously worked from this storefront before the renovations. The other two spaces are still on the rental market.
