The Avenue Cafe is closing tomorrow on St. Mark's Place

Tomorrow (March 30) is the last day in service for The Avenue Cafe at 102 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Per an Instagram message: "Though the time was short, the experience and support will last a lifetime. It’s been real NYC!"

The post also mentioned some upcoming "sweet" news about the space (which we heard is a new vendor taking over the storefront).

The independent/minority-owned shop, which opened in October and offers a variety of coffee drinks and housemade pastries, recently reduced its hours to weekends only.

We heard from a few bummed-out EVG readers who were fans of The Avenue. 

This marked the first storefront for the owners after two-plus years inside the Jamaica Market food hall in Queens.

The previous tenant at No. 102 was another short-lived cafe concept — Compilation Coffee.

The one time I went in there for coffee, I was told there would be a $2 charge for non-dairy milk. Mental note to self: "They really don't want my business!"
