According to co-owners Alexandra Lourdes and Lin Jerome, the space will be designed in a similar vein to the other two locations, with lots of pink, florals, and velvet, but they’ll also be bringing in new elements including a walk-up window where guests can get frose to go, patio seating, and a secret photo room. The new location will have the cafe’s popular mother-daughter tea program and will be family-friendly with costumes and an expansive kids’ menu.
