Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Takeover Appears Imminent


Some of you were pretty excited when we told you SoCal caffeinaters Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf would open their first shop in Times Square, and now, barely six months later, we hear a third shop has opened today. This one hit 392 Columbus Avenue at 79th Street, not far from the existing UWS location. That’s also right by the Museum of Natural History, and there will be outdoor seating and an expanded food menu, so teachers and parents would do well to file this away as a post-T-Rex recovery spot. If our culinary ESP is correct, prepare to see more of these guys.
