Bed Stuy’s Liquid Oz Cafe Has Closed


When we went by Liquid Oz last night the gate was down and there was a message on the window thanking the community for its support. A neighbor, who said he will miss the coffee, said they shut down last week.

The cafe at 302 Malcolm X Boulevard was known for friendly service and great baked goods, such as blueberry bran muffins and chocolate chip cookies. It also offered espresso drinks and chocolate chai tea. There wasn’t anything else like it on Malcolm X and we are sorry to see it go.

The building has been for sale for months. It last changed hands in 2012 for $325,000. As far as we know, Liquid Oz was renting. We’ve emailed the owner but haven’t heard back yet.

Anyone have the scoop? How do you think this will affect the area? GMAP
