Something’s wrong with this coffee shop

Saturday morning, I went looking for a coffee shop in my neighborhood (Sunset Park, Brooklyn). I typed that into Google Maps and got this:

Gorilla Coffee map

Gorilla Coffee is a popular (and pretty decent) coffee shop up in Park Slope. This map made it appear they had opened a new branch in South Brooklyn. And assuming that the street view images were just out of date, I went to check it out. Here’s what I found when I got there.

I’m not sure what happened.

    ah! we had the EXACT same thing happen yesterday using Yelp’s “search local” function to find a coffeeshop. Blank industrial door at the place it sent us. Coincidence?

  2. Conspiracy? The only thing I can figure is that these smaller coffee places get their coffee from somewhere. So perhaps these are where the shipments go and get packaged? Or maybe Scientology is involved.

    Maybe it works like Platform 9-3/4.
