Locus Cafe Opens

By Ilija Sekulovski

Just a few days ago we shared the news of Locus Cafe opening soon…and it looks like it’s much sooner than we anticipated!

 

 

They’ll be having a soft opening tomorrow – with a bigger grand opening coming some time around Valentine’s day.

We talked to Christina Canon, who along with her mother Dina Kowalczyk, brought Locus to life. “My mom always loved making crepes,” Christina tells us, “So we wanted to open up a place that she could make lots of them!” This isn’t their first foray into the cafe world – they used to own a cafe together in California, before moving to Astoria  a decade ago.

Another unique aspect of Locus? Literally all the furniture has been made by hand by Dina. This mother daughter duo has some serious skills – whether it’s cooking, or DIY furniture.
