Yaffa Cafe's former sidewalk cafe is now a garbage dump
Yaffa Cafe officially announced their closure back on Oct. 1 after 30-plus years in business.
We've been curious what will happen to the space at 97 St. Mark's Place just east of First Avenue. We've haven't heard any news about this in recent weeks… the only activity to note is that someone moved the garbage and recycling to the space where Yaffa's sidewalk cafe was…
Yaffa's management decided to call it quits after the city ordered them to discontinue use of their backyard garden … and from the fines stemming from a recent DOH inspection.
