Gachet Coffee Lounge


coffee week, day 2

Gachet is listed already on a restaurant site, so no, this ain’t Breaking News. (hey it seemed to be in soft opening mode so ... no rush to report. But this is coffee week.) There’s a couplo inherently cool things about this lower greenville coffeespot: 1. it’s run by 4 sisters whose names all begin with H: heatherhappyheidihilary. 2. in a twist on conventional wisdom, it stays open til midnite weekdays but closes earlier (at 10) on wkends. Now usually a place gets touts for staying open late, but what coffee drinker would want to be on lower greenville on a wkend nite? Exactly. Gachet also has 3. liqueurs for fancy coffee drinks but no beer 4. pastry from empire baking 5. Monday movie nights.

well, you did post BEFORE NOON but this being "coffee week" -- for real, or just declared by you? -- one would think you'd be up and at 'em earlier. did you have to go to sbux for your morning fix first?

THE PICTURE KEEPS GETTING SMALLER AND MORE SQUISHED. SOON IT'LL BE PANCAKE WEEK.

jess, on (almost) all of these posts, if you click on the headline, you'll find a link to the item's "official" website (today, being, as you said, gachetcoffee.com)

polar, only on NYCE is it officially coffee week (and that's only becuz i happen to have 4-5 coffee-related items). but i hope that the idea of coffee week takes off like wildfire and is eventually adopted by all of mankind

I was looking for a different kind of soft opening.

twisted dog, it's not nice to poach readers from other blogs. maybe you should drop off some flyers at the kennel club or your local branch of the SPCA

tg: the reason greenville avenue residents are home late weekend nights is that is when we videotape the smu students and other revelers who piss on our front lawns

tg: excellent item. love it when you give us news of small, local independents instead of concentrating on thos giant chains. let the starbuck's sheep line up for an ice cream. i'm going to the movies!

what a neat item. just had to respond and tell you how REFRESHING it is when you tell us of a local place and ignore those mega-giants.

i wouldn't be surprised if readers voted this your best blog ever. a local place. not some heartless national corporation. tg, you give us hope.

don't worry, math guy, there will be other opportunities, tho possibly not as bright as one promoting a deserving place that NOT ONLY serves coffee but also wine and has ROOFTOP MOVIES!!!!

have we surpassed the free starbucks ice cream item in number of responses yet?

I think so. if not, we're damn close

so, tg, what do you say about the lameness of the interest in gachet compared to the breathless-suspense about another starbucks release? if you don't respond, ii'll understand that you've joined the line early on the OFF CHANCE that you'll get one of the free cups of ice cream.

i think gachet was the name of one of the inlaws of the lombardis, you know, the family that was killed with their goats and chickens.

r. nixon - sometimes comments don't show up right away - you just gotta refresh the page every so often to get up-to-date comments. (see? another comment posted!)
