Updated June 2: Cafe Sandra is now open!
A coffee shop called Cafe Sandra has signed a lease at 194 First Ave. between 11th Street and 12th Street.
Cafe Sandra already has a website. And despite what the site states, they are not yet open for business. The storefront is empty.
The previous tenant, Space 194, a hybrid tea-coffee shop-gallery, closed in early 2020 after nearly a year in service.
The address was previously the Neptune. The Polish-American diner shut down in December 2016 after 15 years in business. After their departure, the landlord divided up the restaurant into two storefronts.
