Caffe Bene to open on 37th Avenue this fall

Cafe bene street

July 31, 2015 By Michael Florio

Caffé Bene, a multinational coffee giant with more than 1,600 locations in a dozen countries, will be opening its first café in Jackson Heights this fall.

The new cafe will be located at 80-27 37th Ave., and is expected to open during the first week of October, according to a Caffe Bene spokesman.

The location was previously Prima donna, a jewelry and accessory store.

The franchise owner, who did not want to provide his name, said the population mix is what prompted him to open in Jackson Heights.

“It is a densely populated area and ethnically diverse,” he said. “That is exactly the type of neighborhood that a coffee shop would appeal to.”

Caffe Bene has an aggressive growth plan, with the Jackson Heights location just one of several slated to open in Queens. Branches in Elmhurst, Flushing and Forest Hills are also “coming soon”, according to its website.

Caffé Bene has already opened several Queens locations in the past two years, such as in Sunnyside, Bayside and Astoria.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
