BHB pal @ejcory tweets this pic adding “Another interesting new retail shop on Atlantic Ave. That strange always vacant storefront next to Floyd.”

The store which appears to be called 139 @tlantic promises “fair trade coffee, live entertainment, interesting furniture, contemporary artifacts and a unique atmosphere.”

    It sounds like an alternative to Tazza.

    Exotic teas that we can’t get at Sahadi’s and Two for the Pot? Not to mention Trader Joe’s and about half a dozen Middle-East oriented places within a block or so….

    Well, if it’s a coffee shop-like place, it would be a welcome addition to the area. Right now there’s only Tazza, that place in Willowtown, and a couple Starbucks. Especially since the Tea Lounge never happened, something with live music could fill a nice niche here.

    Isn’t “contemporary artifacts” an oxymoron? What? It is, but it’s intention … in a post-modern way? Crap, I am getting old.

    wish it were on Montague, instead of the damn chain dumps.

    What’s a “Neightbor?”

    (Hey, with this site and all the Yassky-isms… y’never know)

    “Neightbor” is the sound of your copy editor falling down on the job. I think I burned out on changing “snowpacalypse” to “snowpocalypse”. By the time I got to “snowacaine” (“caine” being the suffix for a whole other kind of snow), I gave up.

    I hope it does well! Wish it were closer to my house…on Henry for example.

    Well this will fail quickly. Was always wondering why this spot never got anything in it. Hopefully a new restaurant or bar will replace it quickly. I love the old saloon look of the front entrance. Hope they leave that.

    I agree with those who lament the situation on Montague but Atlantic seems to have a lot of empty real estate these days and it would be nice to see some more business. This sounds perfectly in keeping with the look and feel of the storefront. I wish them all the best with it.

    Awesome! It’s just around the corner from me!

    I think this is a Crop to Cup location. Basis Foods is listing this on there website as a pickup location for CSA food.
