    Awesome barista who clearly loves her coffees, plenty of spots to open a laptop (bucking the Bklyn trend), beans and equipment for sale too. Not sure why this place only ranks around 7 right now

    Ignore pre-2016 tips about Doughnut Plant donuts (not since DP moved in on Flatbush) or good coffee (current baristas don't like/drink coffee) 💔

    Solid coffee spot to hit while you wait for repairs next door at Ride Brooklyn. Owner is sooo nice, they have great merch + pastries (some Vegan!) + chill front outdoor space, whats not to love?

    More modern vibe than their 5th Ave location, but equally amazing coffee (they do pour-overs here!). Oh, and Doughnut Plant donuts.

    This is a great place to relax and read a good book. The coffee is very good as well as the pastry. The music is awesome! The waiters are very nice.

    Get the maple latte. Delicious. They have a record player, and they use it.

    Great spot. But beware of ordering an iced coffee off season. Somehow it'll take them 20 minutes to get it to you.

    The pour over coffee was pretty good, for a city that seems to be lacking the slow pour over spirit. The wifi is good, but no outlets. 😫🔌

    Get the smaller lattes because all you're paying for is more milk you big baby.

    such a show, but the art of coffee has been elevated to its the psychotropic levels befitting any inyoxicant.

    Another tip stated free iced coffee with purchase of beans, but it's only for hot coffee.

    The cafe setting is relaxing and spacious. Coffee was ordinary, there are better pales short walking distance away.

    The owner of this place,Carol,very angrily and rudely threw out my moms and my tea in front of our face. After throwing out our tea she told us that we need training in being people and kicked us out.

    Awful coffee shop. The barista rolled her eyes the entire time she spoke to me. In addition this place has no outlets. Waste of my money. Go somewhere else seriously!
