Real-estate agent Paul Chin went before the Passyunk Square Civic Association’s zoning committee this week to pitch his idea to open a coffee shop and bakery at 1149 S. 12th St.
The shop would be mostly grab-and-go with limited seating inside, about eight to 12 seats, said Tina Geary of the zoning committee. Baking would be done on-site and coffee will be come from Green Street Roaster at 19th and Alter streets. Proposed hours are 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Sundays 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Added bonus: Chin said he’d “have one of his employees walk a 1 block radius daily to sweep up any trash on the streets,” Geary said.
