Peaky Barista, a family owned cafe and coffee bar, is now open on Broadway between 102nd and 103rd Streets. They sell pastries, and some intriguing hot drinks, like a turmeric latte. The interior’s got exposed brick and a cozy yellow couch. Thanks to @chengjih for the photo.
Cafe Metro is opening on this Thursday at 2062 Broadway, at the corner of 71st Street. This is Cafe Metro’s 6th location in NYC and the first one to open on the UWS. “The fast-casual group will offer a diverse menu of healthy items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Daily entrees include healthy grain bowls, sandwiches, soups, salads, fresh fruit, and more. In addition to serving healthy, locally sourced foods, Café Metro provides catering for both small and large-scale events.” Here is the menu.
Daily Provisions, on Amsterdam between 77th and 78th Streets, was initially expected to open on Monday, but we peeked in and a woman told us a “gas issue” is holding things up. “If all goes well” — she crossed her fingers — “we’ll be open by the end of this week, the beginning of next.”
A Danny Meyer offering, Daily Provisions is billed as “your neighborhood coffee shop, bakery, and sandwich shop.” We wrote about it in detail here. Thanks to Joenna Sayler for the photos.
