Caffe Bene’s Sunnyside operation is for sale.
The café, located at 41-31 Queens Blvd, opened in May 2014 and is on the market for $550,000 (click for listing). The rent is $7,000 per month and there is 15 years left on the lease, according to the listing.
The opening of the Sunnyside location was the beginning of the Korean coffee giant’s big push into Queens.
In the past 18 months, the company has opened two Astoria locations, one in Kew Gardens and another one is planned for Jackson Heights.
The company is known for offering Korean-styled beverages as well as pastries, croissants, sandwiches, waffles, gelato, and so forth.
The Sunnyside operation is not the only Caffe Bene in Queens for sale. The 31-30 Ditmars Blvd location in Astoria, which opened in October, was put on the market in June.
That owner of the Sunnyside operation was not available for comment.
