Steve reports Southie's PS Gourmet Coffee is now officially open at the old Loonie's Liquors location.
Ed. note: Cool beans and all, but shouldn't they have called it Crazy Coffee?
If they had merged with Loonie's Liquors they could have made a wicked Irish coffee and fit right into their surroundings!
The new name is just as loonie since it's not in PS (Perkins Square) and far from gourmet. It is coffee though.
Ugh, I can't speak for their coffee as I'm a Java House girl, but the double-parking in front of PS Gourmet is freaking ridiculous. I see people sitting in their cars, blocking the right-hand turn lane onto East Broadway just waiting for people to return with their coffees... I consistently get stuck behind these stunods and it makes me lose my sh*t every time.
it's not patrons of new bay liquors?
double parking is a southie right, akin to space saving. Lanes of traffic be damned.
6C/BPD and BTD doesn't seem to care much, which is unfortunate. It's not just limited to this intersection, but pretty much all of E&W Broadway.
It's probably both the package store and the coffee store, but usually I see people with coffee cups popping into the waiting vehicles vs. beer/liquor purchases.
It's more than a southie right, double parking and blocking half the street is a Boston right. Never biked or driven in any other city where it's completely acceptable to just stop on major roads like Newbury or Boylston and block a lane for 30 minutes while you run into a store or get a coffee.
You can't hide poor quality coffee and/or brewing from someone who drinks coffee black. We stopped there the other day because my daughters like the sugary sweet concoctions they serve and my wife grabbed me a black coffee -- it was terrible. Where is Coffee Connection? (P.S. Dunkins is no better.)
I was just saying I thought Adams Corner needed borderline junkies to double park to spice things up.
