Breaking chews: Cafe Grumpy to open in Park Slope!

The South Slope is about to get grumpier. Espresso entrepreneur Caroline Bell told The Brooklyn Paper that she will open a branch of her popular Greenpoint coffeehouse Cafe Grumpy on Seventh Avenue between 11th and 12th streets.

“We’re excited because it’s really close to our apartment,” said Bell, whose coffee joint is considered a shrine by java junkies.

“It’s also our first location on a main street near a subway with lots of foot traffic.”

Seventh Avenue is bustling, but it has proven to be a dead zone for coffeehouses, with both Cafe Eleven and the Tea Lounge closing last year.

Bell is optimistic.

“Coffee shops close when they take up a lot of retail space,” she said. “This is going to be a to-go kind of place.”
