East 59 Vintage & Cafe
East 59 Vintage & Cafe is a coffee shop, community space, and vintage furniture boutique located at 7619 1st Avenue North in East Lake. The company was founded by Amber Glenn-Tolbert and Anna Bates-Brown in 2013 and had a presence at events such as the Woodlawn Street Festival and as a "pop-up" shop during the REVIVE event before the permanent location opened in Spring 2015.
East 59 offers light lunch and brunch along with gourmet coffee and tea. A patio at the rear of the store provides outdoor dining space. The side of the building is decorated with an East Lake mural, highlighting scenes from the neighborhood's colorful history.
