Coffee, crepes and more are coming to the Upper West Side.
Espresso Matto is opening a new location on Columbus Avenue between 85th and 86th Street in the former home of a dry cleaners. “Seems like an odd place given that Joe’s is right on the next corner, but then people do drink a lot of coffee!” Rebecca notes. Espresso Matto also took over the old Filicori Zecchini space on 95th and Broadway earlier this year. Thanks to Sharon for the photo.
