    If you're in the back bathroom and want to go about your business in peace keep absolutely still, it's vision is based on movement.

    Free comedy show every last Tuesday of the month. Really funny but come early if you don't want to be standing up! Great beer and wine selection too. Food platters are a bit small.

    Think local. Eat local. Good to work during the day and good for beers in the evening. They sell local foods from farmers on Tuesday or Wed. Pop by the Invisible Dog next door, nice gallery.

    Love this place. Sure, it can sometimes feel like a mommy, daddy, and me class, but solid beer/wine selection and a nice open plan space where you can comfortably wile away an afternoon with friends.

    Microbrews unite with local food growers to combine for one hell of a taste explosion in your mouth. Get ready for some of the best sourcing New York has to offer.

    It may be a bar by night, but by day this sprawling space is the perfect low-key place for a latte, a truffled grilled cheese and some good conversation. Read more

    61 Local pours locally produced brews only, from its 14 taps. With a low-key crowd, ample natural light and long communal tables, it's the perfect spot to post up for an entire afternoon. Read more

    Food and atmosphere is great. Huge space. On a Saturday afternoon, there are a lot of kids (babies, toddlers). Depending on how you feel abut kids, or if you have one, this could be a plus or minus.

    Great place to visit for an anthropological study of Brooklynites. Note the oddly-sized "art," French magazines abt cheese & yoga, and the horror on the bartender's face when you ask for bottled beer.

    Great selection of wine and beer, so many quality local products. The Mezze Plate is great to share, and the Imperial Ham and Grilled Cheese is probably my favorite sandwich in Brooklyn!

    Chilli pickles. Delicious! Advice (speaking from experience): do not eat at same time as smoked almonds and ginger kombucha. Kinda extreme for a quiet afternoon!

    Amazing vibe! There's even a tiny veggie market in the bar/cafe. A lot of picnic table seating, high ceilings, and great beer selection.

    This place had tons of vegan options on the menu! I just came for coffee, but I liked the space, the vibe, and that the menu was so vegan-friendly. I'd happily return here for food, drinks or coffee.

    One of the few cafes that plays consistently good tunes and at a volume where you can still hear yourself think, perfect when it's already a great free Wi-Fi work space!

    Great place to work; pretty quiet early mornings before the brunch crowd, and super fast wifi. It's so big that I never felt bad about spending a lot of time there.

    Great place for a daytime get-together. Grab a table and camp out, people can come and go as they please, order food and drinks at the bar, and pay separately.

    Northeast Egg Sandwich and Apple Ginger soda: brunch that's well above bar food standards. The sarnie comes with crunchy, spicy green bean pickles that are pretty spectacular.

    Cash only. Dim lighting. Low music. If you're looking to enjoy a locally made craft beer in a calm environment, give this place a try. BTW orders are placed at the Bar.

    Great spot to hang out and work with free wifi all day, plus coffee in the morning, sandwiches for lunch, and craft local beers in the afternoon.

    From a Sixpoint Craft Ales alum comes this cool spot with a great selection of local beers in an awesome space with high ceilings, picnic tables, and a biergarten kind of vibe.

    The openness of the space is awesome, and the coffee is also wonderful. Right by the G train as well, so definitely stop-by when you are in the area!

    Solid solid option if you're looking for a spot you can pass some time in. Great design, high ceilings, interesting mix on tap, and on the bar menu.

    Veg Out Toast: featuring "faux gars" - the smooth savory purée is made from the "livers" of lentils, walnuts, and miso, then gets topped with crisp scallions, red peppers, and mushrooms.

    One of the few great options to bring a big group in Cobble Hill. Big open beerhall-like tables, tons of games and beer options. No hard liquor tough

    I know what beer I like, but here I always ask their advice. Awesome, ever changing selection, with opinionated bartenders that aren't shy about choosing for you.

    No TVs. No liquor license. Plenty of excellent craft drafts from the 5 boroughs. Free wifi, so be a weirdo and bring your MacBook. Try the Bahn Mi.

    Great space & place for a group gathering. Loved the tap beers (lager & IPA.) Food was excellent. Extremely family-friendly. Cool neighborhood spot.

    Huge, loft style coffee shop/bar with blazingly fast internet and quality coffee, ciders and beer.

    Surprisingly vegetarian-friendly and A great place to work - plugs, good wifi and lots of location independent peeps working away during the week.

    Local beers, local foods, a cool atmosphere and fabulous employees. Ask the bartender to recommend a beer. You won't be disappointed.

    Rotating draft beer list, all interesting local brews. Ask for some suggestions based on what you like, the staff is happy to oblige.

    They serve teas and brews by day. Maybe a croissant or two. Rows of MacBooks fill the long picnic tables but there isn't an outlet in sight and the wifi can be spotty.

    The Tide Is High stands out on 61 Local's new sandwich menu if only because it sounds so unlikely: taramasalata, hard-boiled eggs, and salsa verde on potato pugliese. Read more

    Huge space. Good beers on tap. Small menu, but good. Inspired me to start pairing grilled cheese and mushroom barley soup.

    Huge spot, great coffee, great place to work. They also do co-working events (like Boroughgram) in the upstairs space.

    Soupy deliciousness! Indonesian cauliflower (with vegan faux gras toast on the side).

    Afternoons it's got hipsters and laptops like the Slope has distracted nannies. Still, a beer selection can help with how weird you feel not working on your screenplay.

    Massive space, great decor, not too crowded. And a selection of good beers on tap for reasonable prices ($6 - $8).

    My favorite place to hang on a weekday afternoon. Make sure to get the ricotta with honey and crushed pistachios on toast.

    Veg Out Toast is incredibly good. Pair it will a tasty beer or a nice capp and you'll be feeling great.

    It was an unexpectedly great place to work on a weekday. Spacious, good food and a skylight in the middle of the room did it for me.

    People come here to show off their babies to their friends with babies. They even put the babies on the tables. Lots of baby crying. Soooo, if you're into that sort of thing, this is your place.
