The Wayside is now open on East 12th Street

A few readers told us that Wayside is now open at 139 E. 12th St. just west of Third Avenue...

The cafe took over for the long-closed D&M Convenience store.

We don't know too much about the Wayside (not to be confused with the Wayland). This was the info from the Wayside application filed ahead of the CB3/SLA committee meeting in August 2012:

The applicants, listed as Paul Typaldos and Andreas Typaldos, will run a small cafe that would be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday, and 7 a.m.-2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. They describe the food as "simple organic fare: sandwiches, paninis, salads."

And according to the application, Paul Typaldos is a majority member in Greensquare Tavern over on West 21st Street.

This place is fabulous. Awesome sandwiches and coffee. The best almond croissant I've ever had!!--I could eat a case of them.
A very discerning style. It's a hip place, and is fun and laid back, but it also cultivates this kind of sublime modern-urban sophistication. The lines of the wood, in unison with the lighting, have this almost Scandinavian architectural aesthetic. Dynamic, while comfortable. Also, it's a great place to have in the neighborhood because it isn't age-specific; that is to say, both students and professors could hang out there without any culture-clash. Also, they serve beer and wine in the evenings. Good alternative to noisy bars if you're not in the mood for that.
