Cafe In The Works at Uncle Moe's Space

Construction has been coming along briskly in the space that was last home to Uncle Moe's Burritos, which closed last November after 20 years in business on Seventh Avenue between 9th and 10th Streets. I've walked past otfen in the past couple months, but actual activity in there has been sporadic, to say the least.

I noticed some work going on the other day, however, and was able to briefly speak to a construction worker, who told me that the space would be "a cafe." A peek inside revealed a curved counter, so my guess is that the finished product will resemble Venticinque or Konditori, and be a quick place to drop by for a coffee and pastry on your way to the subway.

Just what the area needs. Another cafe.... Maybe we need more pizzeria's or even Bagel Shops. While your at it-Put some more meters and johnny pumps up and organic bodega's(love those). Bloomberg send some more meter maids around. What a joke!

At least it's not a bank or nail salon, or another Thai place.

Not sure how a cafe can incite such anger as witnessed by brooklynite 24/7.

what would you have preferred here?

I'm just happy it's not yet ANOTHER real estate broker. They have the most obnoxious windows and cater only to those looking to buy already overpriced properties. I'll withhold my judgement on the "cafe" until we see what it really will be.

Well, the problem in general is landlords that don't live here, and have no concern over the quality or the balance of businesses in the neighborhood.
