CC’s Cafe Space on Monroe Street Hits the Market

CC’s Cafe on Monroe Street might not last.

Rumors of its demise – aka the owner wanting to surrender – have appeared over the last couple years. But now it appears more likely.

This retail listing on Craigslist for the 700 square-foot restaurant space went live several days ago. Asking rent is $6,500 per month. According to the post, CC’s is on a month-to-month lease.

Founded in the West Village on Hudson Street, CC’s Cafe didn’t open its Chinatown/Lower East Side sibling until 2011. For eight years, it served as an oasis. A friendly, neighborhood joint, CC’s Cafe is easily one of the better restaurants in the neighborhood. Simply put, it’s a classic casual spot to grab a meal, sit at the counter, and watch the cooks make your food. No scene.
