Call it good, caffeinated fun.
Ridgites got buzzed at the May 4 grand opening of the newest location of a beloved neighborhood coffee chain.
Born-and-bred Ridgite Abdul Elenani said his local roots inspired the opening of the area’s third outpost of Cocoa Grinder, located on Fourth Avenue at 95th Street.
“I like Bay Ridge — it’s my hometown,” said Elenani, who now calls the distant land of Staten Island home.
The party included plenty of coffee, along with candy, face painting, and balloons for the neighborhood’s youngest coffee fiends, who have a dedicated place to play in the café’s indoor play pen.
The opening marked the chain’s 13th location, a dozen of which are in Kings County. Elenani, who started the coffee company in 2013, said he plans to open more locations in the Borough of Churches, and attributes his success to offering a combination of good grub and drinks.
“It serves both purposes of good coffee and good food,” he said.
