Noella Brew Bar, the coffee shop from former Ozzie's co-owner Melissa Rapoport that opened in December 2011 on Seventh Avenue between Berkeley and Lincoln, will be closing on March 3rd.
The space had been for rent in recent weeks, with a going rate of $8,200 for the 900 square foot space. While the offerings were quality, there wasn't much to set the shop apart from the other cafes in the area, and the warning signs were certainly there; the most glaring one was the addition of a Stitch Therapy shop to the front space a couple months ago. It certainly didn't help that Cafe Regular du Nord and Cafe Dada happened to be right across the street.
Here's the official announcement, via Facebook:
