New Coffeehouse and Roastery coming to Goss Avenue

Germantown resident Billy Seckman is planning to open a coffeehouse and roastery called Bean at 1138 Goss Avenue. The building was previously occupied by Miss Kay's Hair Salon then I.D.E.A.S. The building sits across the street from the bar formerly known as Pauly's, which is currently being renovated and opened by the team behind El Camino and Silver Dollar and renamed "The Pearl."
