Two Bloggers Meet at Cafe Dada
Liena Zigara (of Park Slope Stoop) and I met for coffee at Cafe Dada. We sat for two hours in that lovely new space. Now that I’ve actually been there I can report that the former Ozzie’s has been renovated with skill and taste.
The owners repurposed the old pharmacy cabinets, glass and signage. A nice touch was the old prescriptions sign above the kitchen area. One of the owners, whose name is Gabor, said that he’d spent the last six months in the storefront renovating and getting the space ready.
I had two iced coffees served in a tall glass. Liena had coffee, served in a pretty coffee cup. She also had a fruit salad. I took a free taste of a delicious apple streudel.
Gabor said that the shop will soon be serving beer and wine, which I think will only enhance the offerings of this new cafe.
In case you need reminding: Dada wan an avant-garde art movement developed in Europe in the early 20th century. Think Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, Tristan Tzara, Andre Breton, Man Ray, Dorothea Tanning. Wouldn’t it be cool to run into one of them at the Dada?
A lovely place to sit, sip, and converse with a friend on a great corner (Lincoln and Seventh Avenue).
