The first two seasons of Girls may have given Café Grumpy, the Greenpoint-based coffee chainlet, a big boost in the form of nonstop Hannah Horvath tour-bus traffic, but it’s the company’s dedication to sourcing, roasting, and brewing that’s really earned it serious coffee cred. The good news for anyone who cares about espresso is that Grumpy will indeed replace one of Grand Central Terminal’s Starbucks locations, as part of the MTA’s previously announced push to put more “locally owned small businesses” in front of thousands of commuters. The shop is on time or close to schedule for a May grand opening. [Thirsty NYC, Related]
