Cafe L’Aube has returned to Graduate Hospital, opening inside the NextFab Studio space at 2025 Washington Avenue. The cafe serves coffee, French pastries and of course, crepes. Cafe L’Aube’s original location was on the 1500 block of South Street but closed shortly after owner Jean-Luc Fanny opened his second location in Fairmount.
Fanny will also be roasting out of the location and his roaster hooked up and ready to go. And this opening is just the latest for what looks to be an empire on the making. Fanny is also looking to open near Rittenhouse Square.
As for NextFab Studio, it looks to be a high-tech playground for Philadelphia artists and innovators. Check out the grand opening tomorrow.
