The space, which neighbors a parking lot and Henry’s Hunan, was once the home of the MSG-championing Chinese restaurant SO.

Greg Poon was not immediately available for comment, and there’s no word yet on when Beyond Cafe plans to open its doors.

There’s a little competition on the block — L’acajou Bakery and Cafe is just down the street and Peet’s Coffee is around the corner — but if you ask us, there’s really no such thing as too much coffee (or too many snacks).
