Mugshots moving its Fairmount flagship

The coffee shop across from Eastern State Penitentiary is taking a new space a block and a half away.

Mugshots moving its Fairmount flagship

Mugshots, my coffee fave in Fairmount, is pulling out of its flagship location at 2100 Fairmount Ave. after nearly eight years over a dispute with the landlord, says owner Angela Vendetti.

Finale will be the end of March.

But: Mugshots will resurface a block and a half away, in a new building under construction at 1921-29 Fairmount Ave., she says. This building also will house a Latin restaurant called BlueCat.

Vendetti is pumped about the design of her new digs, whose date of occupancy is not known. The venue will feature a coffee bar with seating, as well as host musicians.

Fairmount has been hot of late, with openings including Lemon Hill and Hickory Lane. Also, Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal's La Calaca Feliz will open Jan. 17-ish at 2321 Fairmount Ave.
