Mr. Fong’s Team Brings ‘Oliver Coffee Counter’ to Oliver Street
The historic block of Oliver Street just off Chatham Square now boasts its own trendy coffee shop. And so it begins, brought to you by a familiar face in nuevo-Chinatown.
Dubbed Oliver Coffee Counter, the space slings not only its namesake beverage, but also a small “international newsstand” with various periodicals (and candy). It debuted at 5 Oliver Street a couple weeks ago – where a Chinese locksmith previously held court – and is one of the few businesses on the block. Customers can order Variety Coffee and pastries through the window, or seated at two tables inside.
We’re told that the ownership of the two-year-old Mr. Fong’s nightspot on Market Street are reportedly behind the venture.
And here’s the requisite, albeit blurry, photo of the interior.
