First reported on Here’s Park Slope, a new cozy little coffee shop opened up at 162 fifth ave in the spot where Love=? most recently was.
Called Venticinque, it opened up officially on Friday the 22nd HPS reports. An authentic Italian espresso bar, there is virtually no seating but instead very good coffee and a small assortment of similarly good pastries.
Initial reviews by HPS a swell as from readers on both HPS and Brownstoner are good: “This is good stuff” says HPS; “great stuff” says a reader on Brownstoner; “loved it” says another on HPS.
Other readers have even gone so far already as to say that Venticinque is one of the best coffee shops in the neighborhood.
Not bad for the new kid on the block!
