Leche is new Latin American cafe on the edge of the Johnston St Hispanic strip, with Casa Iberica a couple of doors down and Los Amates just across the road. They make good coffee and have a short menu including arepas and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. My delicious chorizo and cheese arepa was only $8.
I’ve maintained an interest in this building for several years as an example of the complex issue of how spaces work as hospitality venues. This building has been the location of repeated closures in 2012, 2013 and earlier in 2015. It’s a puzzle and a situation that I think can be changed. I hope they do well.
