If you've got your ear on the pulse of Roslindale, you've probably already heard the buzz for new arrival P.S. Gourmet. Taking over the storefront on the corner of Poplar and Washington Streets, the yellow signs have announced the coffee shop's imminent arrival for several weeks. A couple of weeks ago, P.S. Gourmet officially opened, and the lines are already forming.
"It's been great," said store manager Rob, noting that they opened to little fanfare and have seen the traffic in the store grow everyday so far.
So far, the customers at the Roslindale location are similar to those at the Dorchester shop - a lot of students and young people, according to Rob, who also notes that "we don't see that crowd in South Boston."
If you're dropping by P.S. Gourmet, Rob recommends the P.S. Special - a cinnamon hazelnut mocha with whipped cream and "by far the most popular flavor, across all locations" - but if that's not your style, they have over 100 flavors to choose from (just remember, they're cash only)!
