Blank Street continues East Village expansion with outpost on 1st Avenue

Updated July 1: This branch is now open

A new location of Blank Street coffee is coming to the NE corner of First Avenue at 13th Street (opposite the Starbucks on the NW corner).

Blank Street also carries products from local brands, including King Street Baking Co. and King David Tacos

Our previous post (here) has more background about Blank Street.

This will make the fourth outpost in the EV area for the fast-growing coffee brand. Last fall saw the arrival of branches at 149 Avenue A ...36 Third Ave. ... and in the Bowery Market

This storefront was last a GNC, which shuttered in the summer of 2020.

I appreciate the minimalism of this signage/logo but I cannot help but feel that a specifically East Village–based coffee company of this name should be set ____ Street Coffee.

Your coffee makes me ____

Blank Street is the next generation of Starbucks essentially. VC backed and trying to be worth billions. Spend your money elsewhere if you can.

Free coffee on opening day?

Blank Street has $25M of VC funding and their tactis is to on aggressive months-long campaigns of free coffee to send the local shops broke

Screw them and what they've already done around Brooklyn.
