A pop-up café has opened on Vernon Boulevard in the space occupied by the comedy club The Standing Room.
Sage Coffee opened last week at 47-38 Vernon Boulevard and will be operating between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. most days. The owner aims to gain a following and then open a café in another Long Island City location.
Sage will be operating out of the Vernon Boulevard location indefinitely. However, it will have to close most days by 4 p.m. to ensure that The Standing Room can take the space at night.
“We are trying to develop a proper espresso bar and are experimenting as to what works and what doesn’t,” said manager David Flick. “We hope to get our feet wet here and build clientele.”
The venue currently has a limited menu at this time.
