    Really excellent tea. The coffee smelled amazing. I'd visit Brooklyn just to visit here.

    Great to chill and get work done. Fyi: outdoor space is a no laptops zone.

    Coffee is very good, but wifi is spotty at times and they close at 8, which can be annoying. Also, while the decor is kind of cool grunge-cozy, I wouldn't describe the place as too comfortable.

    Idk shit about coffee, but the cold brew is good! Alabama Shakes over the speakers is an instant win for me 👍🏽

    Beware of the very strict computers rules ! Like an ugly smoking guy, you have to hide yourself at the back of the place if you wanna use your laptop.

    This place could easily be pretentious (dark stumptown coffee shop on bedford) but the baristas are extremely friendly and so good at what they do

    Rejoice, for the staff is friendly, the WiFi free and the seating ample. But note the quiet, the lack of conversation - laptops dominate the space.

    Stumptown coffee! Classic Williamsburg reclaimed-wood, rustic-industrial decor

    Baristas were nice. Decor amazing. Avoid the tense people on their Macbooks and go out back!

    The servers couldn't be more up-themselves and annoyed that they have to serve you (we're talking worse than 9th Street Espresso). But the coffee's good and there's plenty of space to work.

    The coffee is excellent here but they have no idea what a frappé is, and the barista will give you a snotty attitude if you're not hipster enough for him.

    There's a special "no laptop" section by the front. But they don't hide their plugs if you need to sit down and work on your computer.

    The cold brew is great. I didn't enjoy getting chased by a bee outside the entrance though.

    The cappuccino was a bit cold and the music is a bit loud. Is this a coffee shop or a rock venue?

    It's all about the French press. Tastes amazing and is at a truly fair price.
