A 2,000-square-foot garden out back is open nearly year-round.

Death Ave brews beer on-site, in a 1,500-square-foot subterranean brewery.

Coffee beans are also roasted daily. Traditional Hellenic coffee is served, using a traditional brewing practice called hóvoli, using hot sand.

The name alludes to the location where hundreds of lives would be claimed by a high-speed freight train in the years between 1846 and 1941.
