Lower East Side Cafe News

Ceci Cela, Spring St

According to Bowery Boogie, one of the best neighborhood blogs, Brooklyn-based Heartbeet Juicery is leaving 85 Stanton Street, with the mysterious Rise Coffee to take its place. Anybody have any info on this spot? We couldn’t find anything.

Last month they also reported that Ceci Cela will be opening a Lower East Side shop on Delancey next to the Bowery Ballroom. This Soho stalwart was a favorite of ours as recently as 10 years ago, but there is a lot more competition in the French pastry realm these days, with most of the new spots having far better service than Ceci Cela. They’re not even mentionable these days in the coffee realm, but maybe the new shop will see them using a better roaster.
