Madame Bonté Cafe has expanded with a second Upper East Side shop located at 318 East 84th Street, between First and Second Avenues.
The owners opened their first location – at 1834 Second Avenue, between 94th and 95th Streets – in July 2020. While many bars and restaurants were shutting down for good at the time, Madame Bonté Cafe found success early on – with the assistance of outdoor seating and remote workers who needed somewhere to go.
The new space, which comes with two floors and a backyard, was formerly occupied by Café Jax, which permanently closed last year.
The French sibling-owned cafe offers hot and cold teas and coffees, pastries and sandwiches. Reviews are solid across platforms, with a score of 4.9 out of 5 stars on Google and 4.5 out of 5 stars on Yelp.
Madame Bonté Cafe’s expansion comes amidst several new coffee spots including Marathon Coffee and Ella’s Cafe.
