Bread Love Searching for New Space After Fire


    Bed Stuy coffee shop Bread Love is searching for new space, perhaps a pop-up shop, after a fire gutted its cafe in the stable behind 375 Stuyvesant Avenue last month. In the meantime, the outfit is still selling baked goods and coffee at the Lewis Avenue flea market every Saturday, reported DNAinfo.

    The fire has also displaced other tenants at the building, because the caretakers of the mansion, Gather Brooklyn, “will no longer manage the space,” according to the story. So the community groups and nonprofits there, including a Capoeira group, will no longer have space in the building. Presumably the Freebrook Academy school is still operating in the mansion, though the story didn’t specify.

    The cause of the fire is still being investigated. Above, the backyard space and stable as it appeared the morning after the fire.
