It looks like a new coffee bar is opening up at Gerrard and Galt, just west of Jones. It's pretty much across the street from where the new burger shop, Great Burger Kitchen, is opening. If you know the area, it's where the internet cafe used to be.
So far there's just an "Opening Soon" sign in the window with the name, Grinder, so it's probably weeks away from opening.
Hopefully it'll be as good as the other coffeehouses in the area, saving me the trip to Te Aro and Mercury!
