Coffee Den to change ownership!

The rumors have been confirmed! Jen, the current owner of the Coffee Den, has sold the business to the owner of the building and Neil from Petite Crevette. The plan is to keep it as a coffee shop in the daytime but to turn it into a wine bar at night.

This is definitely the end of an era. We've always enjoyed hanging out at the coffee shop with our sons, sipping coffee or tea while they play with the toys and books in the back. Jen has also been extremely supportive of community events, donating coffee ans snacks to numerous concerts and events at the Urban Meadow and Mother Cabrini Park.

We sincerely hope that the new owners are going to offer as much of a cozy feel as has been provided at the Coffee Den under the ownership of Jen and her family. We are also looking forward to the exciting news of nighttime hours and wine!

Maybe serve good coffee now? And not close so early? And clean up a bit?

That's exciting news!!! I don't have to walk all the way to Smith St. to enjoy a glass of wine and community in the evening hours. It's about time that we start seeing such investments in the area.

Where was everyone when Reds Tapas and Wine Bar was struggling to stay open on Columbia & Summit. Good Luck but I'm not sure there's enough daily support for this kind of venture in this hood!

It will all depend on the ambience and vibe of the place. But this location is a lot better than Reds.

Put a few more restaurants on union instead of offices and the area will pick back up.

plus reopen lido space!

I appreciated the Coffee Den's low key, unpretentious, kid friendly vibe. I wish Jen luck.
