We’ve gotten word that an organic grocery store is coming to the acute corner of 12th and Dickinson that’s been vacant about a year.
It used to house a no-named coffee house that was known mostly for attracting any number of nationalities that watched soccer games on the projection screen. It was also the best damn $1.50 cappuccino that we ever had.
We don’t have too much information yet about the new spot, other than that the owner plans an organic grocer that will sell vegetables from nearby farms, according to the listing agent. Of course, there will be more than that, and we’ll let you know as soon as the owner gets back to us.
Meanwhile, all that sidewalk construction in front of the shop is another rain garden brought to you by the Philadelphia Water Department.
