New cafe opens on Austin Street


Aug. 10, 2017 By Jason Cohen

Pink Forest, a café offering sandwiches, bagels and crepes– as well as space for artists to paint–opened on Austin Street last month.

The café, located at 72-01 Austin St., replaced a jewelry store, which closed several months ago. Owned by Sergio Gomez, this is the first café/eatery for Gomez and his wife, who operate a dance studio in Manhattan.

In addition to coffee, tea, bagels and pastries, this new eatery stands out for its featured item, JianBing, a traditional northern Chinese dish. The dish is made with flour and eggs, which are fried to a crispy fritter. From there, the fritter is filled with sweet sauce, hot sauce, lettuce, green onion and coriander.

Pink Forest also offers something for artists. There are brushes and paint on offer that customers can use for a nominal fee.
