As we first noted back on Dec. 31, the the second NYC location for Third Rail Coffee is taking over the former Stogo space on East 10th Street just west of Second Avenue.
And the shop had a quiet opening Sunday ... though people noticed.
Coffee-loving East Villagers rejoice: THE NEW THIRD RAIL IS OPEN AND IS KICKING ASS!!!!!

Co-owner/barista Humberto Ricardo told us that they're "semi open." He and his team are still working out a few kinks with the new space. He'll likely have a more formal Grand Opening after the July 4 holiday.
In early January, Ricardo shared more about the space with us.
"I'm really excited to get back to the East Village. It was the first place I lived on my own in New York City when I moved there," he said. In particular, he always liked this picturesque stretch of East 10th Street — near the St. Mark's Church-in-the-Bowery and the circa 1860s row houses designed by James Renwick Jr.
