    Great nitro cold brew and they offer a variety of bakery items. Poppyseed muffin was great! I went during morning rush hour and the staff did a great job of trying to get the lines moving quickly.

    Thunderbolt: freshly made lemonade with a shot of Haru, a citric coffee with gingery flavors The two partner beautifully for a captivating flavor that’s part iced Americano, part American South. Read more

    fluff and nonsense masquerades as farm to table authenticity. their presentation rings perfect for the curated life, but when it comes down to it, there's no there there. no depth, no taste, no punch.

    The homemade poptarts, which change up seasonally, are the way to go here (pair perfectly with their excellent latte). They usually incorporate fruits from the Carroll Gardens Farmers Market.

    All the coffee here is great, nitro cold brew is delicious and smooth. Amazing muffins and egg sandwiches, we get them every weekend.

    A Carroll Gardens staple. Even if you can't beat the parental rush on weekday mornings following school drop-offs, it's still worth the wait. Tiny quiches! Iced coffee! Lemonade! 👍👍

    Best pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) I've had in New York. If you go every day for a month, they just might start having it waiting by the time you're at the register.

    Grab a Thunderbolt (espresso + lemonade) and a savory bread pudding. Two deliciously unique concoctions that make Smith Canteen unbeatable.

    In an unsuspecting corner of Brooklyn... ONE OF THE GREATEST SANDWICHES EVER CREATED. The fried chicken on an everything croissant sandwich.

    Espresso based drinks are better than the drip coffee. Staff are cheerful and 'tude free. Decent but unexceptional baked goods. Rotating soups, but the sandwiches never change.

    Breakfast sandwiches on EVERYTHING croissants - what could be better? The ham, egg, and cheese has really raised the bar for us.

    The egg salad sandwich is simple, large, and delicious. Overall everything feels slightly more expensive than it should be.

    The turkey & bacon sandwich on an everything croissant is never not perfect. Follow it up with the ring-ding.

    They may be focused a little more on food than coffee here, but the shop—whose tiny tables make it feel more Continental chic than library-like—is long on charm.

    Best iced latte in the area. There are a lot of good ones, but here milk, ice and espresso become something great.

    If you haven't had the turkey sandwich here, you're missing out: buttermilk-brined bird, house-made sage mayo, plus bacon on a house-made croissant. Featured in Cheap Eats 2011! Read more

    Grab a Thunderbolt. Straight from Zeus' hand, this iced concoction combines fresh squeezed lemonade and a shot of single-origin espresso. Zap!

    Everything tastes great here. Pay close attention when they ring you up though. Have been overcharged $5 or more on several occasions.

    Come Sunday mornings and grab a coffee for the Greenmarket- Warning - that little cookie they give you while you're waiting for your biscuit is not an amuse bouche - that's your biscuit

    Plan on taking 5-10 minutes longer than you thought you would. Slow service, but amazing breakfast sandwich.

    The turkey and bacon is awesome, but I daresay the roast beef is even better!

    The thunderbolt (lemonade+espresso) sounds like a crazy Frankendrink, but it's remarkably delicious.
