Is Glassell Park ready for a hip new coffee shop? Let’s hope so, because the northeast neighborhood is certainly getting one.
Tippers first spotted signage for Habitat Coffee (a "neighborhood coffee shop" according to the frontage) on Eagle Rock Blvd. last week, and it looks now like the spacious location is just about ready to go. There’s some paperwork up on the front door asking for applications for baristas and front of house staff, but otherwise the interior appears to be pretty much intact.
The change of use permit currently slapped to the front of the building shows the transformation of the site from an unused part of an office building to a budding cafe, complete with two-top tables, one wall lined with booth seating and lots of flashy tile. Wood beams and tabletops are ubiquitous, of course, along with hanging bulbs and a cold case for take-away items and on-site noshing.
Once up and running, Habitat’s hours are slated to run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
