    Great great coffee shop - one of the best in North Brooklyn - great owner, great baristas, great atmosphere, and a great backyard/patio in the summer as well. And always a perfect cup

    By far the friendliest coffee shop staff in the neighborhood. Good amount of seating, some basic pastry items, and with $2 drip and $3 americanos the prices are great compared to others nearby

    Reclaimed wood and exposed brick wall set the vintage feel for this coffee shop. Order the espresso or French press and enjoy their fast and free WiFi.

    Love this cafe. This place has a really good vibe & coffee. Iced Americano w/an extra shot. But the music speakers are BUSTED. They play this crazy echo buzzing sounds, at first cool, now a headache.

    The iced ginger plum and lemongrass teas are absolutely delicious. The iced lemongrass tea was surprisingly not overpowering; it was just right. Plus, super welcoming and chill employees and place.

    Delicious coffee. Grab a latte and the chess board, find a play near the back to play. Great music. Relaxing atmosphere.

    I got some kind of chocolate truffle cookie with salt on top... It was HEAVENLY. Haven't stopped craving it since! And by the way, it's cash only. Wifi password = extra shot :)

    Best coffee in the area and baristas are awesome! When they do have food, they have ham/cheese croissants that are delish. Gets crowded weekend afternoons & not enough bandwidth for wifi ;(

    Lattes and Dough Donuts! The decor is a bit dark so I didn't expect it to be an Espresso bar and walked right past it at first.

    Diesel cold brew iced coffee. Quality + super friendly baristas make it a neighborhood standout. Outlets and wifi available if that's your thing, laptop-free zone for the rest of us.

    Fantastic stump town coffee, interesting iced teas, and insane pastries when available. Friendly staff! Too many laptop hobos tho. This place would be perfect without wifi.

    The patio is straight out of Austin. Also, to handle the $5 credit card limit, just get two of what you get and they'll give you a receipt for later.

    Coziest cafe in Williamsburg. Staff is extremely friendly. The myriad of fans keep it breezy even during the heat of summer!

    With 2 stool-height tables, probably about half the seating at Williamsburg's Black Brick is suitable for standing work. Dark, beautiful cafe made from reclaimed objects & wood. Free wifi, ok coffee. Read more

    The cappuccino here is really well balanced not bitter not acidic and a hint of sweetness from the well made milk frothing. Love it!

    Good tea. Good times. The bathroom has one of those old fashioned toilets where you pull on the chain thing. That was exciting. And the cookies are yummay.

    Serving Stumptown in a beautifully reclaimed vintage/industrial decor collected on a road trip by the owner. Back yard rumored to open late summer 2012!

    Something that isn't blue bottle or la colombe or bluestone lane? I must not be in manhattan. Dope espresso pulls though.

    Nice decor, Sonic Youth playing in the background, good coffee but the preparation (of a regular cappuccino) took forever! Not the right place if you're in a hurry.
