While you weren’t looking, a new coffee shop was born in March on W. Preston Street in Mount Vernon. Tooth N’ Nail isn’t of the sleek, modern variety, opting instead for a laid-back ’90s vibe and, per a description on its Facebook page, an aim of “hearkening back to the old days when they were community spaces for artists, students and local people to gather.”
