When the brown butcher paper arrived in the windows of 8 Spring Street back in January, it teased a simple handwritten message. “Something wonderful is coming.” That something is actually a miniscule coffee spot called Yours Truly.

Yours Truly, in its own words, is “dedicated to coffee excellence and inspirational menu items.” The shoebox shop will serve Intelligentsia coffee alongside non-dairy beverages by Califia Farms. There is a food component, too. We are told that pastries and breakfast items at launch, but the offerings will expand to acai bowls, yogurt parfaits, sandwiches, and salads.

Build-out has been ongoing the last couple months and is now in the final stages. Opening is slated for this weekend.

8 Spring Street previously operated as a fashion outpost for Sergio Davila. Even though its tenure on the block was short-lived, it did uncover some great ghost signage of the iconic Willoughby Sharp Gallery. But it’s gone now, replaced with a generic nameplate awaiting its final branding.

Lastly, Yours Truly gets the neighborhood wrong. 8 Spring is not SoHo. If anything, this is Lower East Side or Little Italy.
