Sources at Gorilla Coffee have confirmed that the neighborhood favorite will be opening up its second location at 472 Bergen Street, in the former Lululemon space. It’s the first part of their expansion, which also includes more distant plans for opening a roasting facility and café in Gowanus.
The Bergen Street shop will function much like the original location (97 Fifth Avenue), offering a place to sit and enjoy that beloved brew along with some pastries. They weren’t able to offer a solid opening date yet, saying that the space is still in construction.
Admittedly, there isn’t too far of a distance between the two spots, but a second space might alleviate those morning– and, come to think of it, afternoon– lines. Hey, we’re psyched about anything that makes it easier for us to get one of their iced Americanos.
