Eggloo, which specializes in Hong Kong egg waffles and ice cream sandwiches, is opening this weekend at 147 Avenue A between Ninth Street and 10th Street. (H/T B+B)
This will be Eggloo's second NYC location. They opened on Mulberry Street in February 2016. And as amNew York reported at the time: "Teenagers out of school for the holiday crowded the narrow entryway, blaring Taylor Swift, and eagerly ordered matcha waffles griddled to order, stuffed with a plush scoop of homemade strawberry ice cream, topped with mochi, colorful cereal and more."
Eggloo will be just one storefront away from another new dessert place — Gelarto.
Other nearby dessert places opening soon are Becky's Bites, the cream cheese shop on Seventh Street, and Stuffed Ice Cream on First Avenue. That Stuffed signage arrived on Monday...

As for 147 Avenue A, the storefront in prison-bound landlord Steve Croman's building has been vacant for the past two years. La Lucha closed here after six years in business, citing "the outrageous cost of operating in the village."
