South Korean coffee chain Caffe Bene is set to open a new location on Bell Boulevard.

South Korean coffee shop chain Caffe Bene is set to bring its signature coffee and desserts to Bayside when it opens on Bell Boulevard this Saturday.

“We’re always excited to enter into new communities and neighborhoods, so we’re really hoping that a lot of the locals will come by and enjoy the space, food and atmosphere we offer,” said Caffe Bene marketing associate Amy Park.

Caffe Bene’s menu includes extensive food and beverage selections, with savory lunch options and sweet desserts alongside smoothies and coffee drinks.

The new location, off of 39th Avenue, will be sure to serve two of Caffe Bene’s signature desserts, the Belgian waffle and patbingsu, a popular South Korean shaved ice treat. Each waffle is made fresh on the premises according to the customer’s order, and can be topped with fruit, cream cheese, yogurt or whipped cream.

Another signature item at the cafe sure to ignite intrigue among local consumers is their misu garu, a multigrain power shake served both hot and cold.

Caffe Bene opened its first location in South Korea in 2008. According to Park, Caffe Bene is well known for their rapid expansion, and the chain has now has 1,600 locations worldwide, with 37 operating in the United States.

The first Caffe Bene flagship built outside South Korea was installed in 2012 in Times Square and has two floors of space and a library area of books for patrons to read.
