GrandLo Cafe is Now Open With a $3 Coffee + Pastry Special


We stopped by the brand new GrandLo Cafe for our morning coffee and to meet the team working at Grand Street Settlement’s social enterprise venture at 178 Broome St.

Manager Adam Perez was behind the counter, along with Cindy Vasquez. The cafe, which will serve as a youth training center, is part of the new Essex Crossing project. Opening week hours are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (take advantage of a $3 coffee & pastry special this week). The business will be open starting next week 7 a.m.-3 p.m.

We can already tell the GrandLo Cafe will be a good community gathering spot. If you’re looking for a casual meeting destination in the neighborhood, check it out.
