    Good coffee but the atmosphere makes me feel like I'm yelling in a library.

    Roasts its own beans behind the shop + lots of room to work + free wifi!

    Best café in Greenpoint. Large, comfortable and great atmosphere.

  • Nathan G.

    Great place to work, with big tables, quiet music (think library), and lots of natural light. All that seasoned with really good coffee!

    Chill cafe with great espresso based drinks

    Great people with a lot of space to work and of course great coffee.

    Great local coffee spot. The coffee baristas are chipper and nice despite the Grumpy title. The coffee is one of the best tasting coffee in NYC. Totally worth it.

    All of the baristas are awesome minus the rude glasses/big hair lady. I asked for more chocolate in my cocoa, told me how "they do it" & then proceeded to shoot tons of syrup in the cup. Thanks, jerk.

    Great place to get work done. Free wifi and good coffee!

    Evan Walden · November 16, 2014

    Great place to buy freshly roasted, quality beans (Malacara makes a rich, smooth cup), and the baristas can prepare anything fancy you'd like.

    Ryan Jorgenson · November 6, 2014
  • Betty C.

    Overpriced coffee

    I like their coffee beans. Cappuccino was quite well made. Really liked the black pepper/cardamom banana bread.

  • Dr. P.

    Best espressos I've had in Brooklyn or Manhattan. This ain't no cookie cutter Starbucks.

    Dr. Ploinky · August 9, 2014
  • Michael D.

    Best cold brew in NYC.

    Good meeting spot. Pretty quiet and somewhat empty during weekdays

    This coffee shop eventually grew to include several locations as well as an in­house roastery as of 2009—plus its own role in HBO’s Girls. The staff includes three certified Q Graders. Read more

    Just put a Revenge From Mars in 3D machine in the back by the roasters! $0.50 a game // 3 games for $1.00.

    The music and vibe great! Try any muffin!

    Don't be a chump. Order a Gibralter off menu like a boss.

    Here is where you can get coffee!

    Walked in and walked right back out. Stinks of pretentiousness.

    You may arrive grumpy at this cafe, located within walking distance from Prospect Park, but you'll leave happy after trying their Guatemalan coffee.

    I think there's a hint of cardamom in the banana bread. Just so you know.

    Adam Burrows · July 11, 2013

    There's a book share in the back.

    The iced coffee was too acidic. Not impressed. :/

    Great coffee and other such drinks. BUT...the slowest Internet on earth. What is this dial up?

  • Agata R.

    Great place, an island in the ugly neighborhood, good coffee, nice service, can be confused with apple store :) they make cafe au lait not like in the EU but they are aware of that :)

    The last shop standing of the four-store Grumpy empire to allow computer use, this neighborhoody spot is often as quiet as a library on weekends.

    Try any of the single origin coffees. Way, way better than any cafe latte.

    Try the The Bee’s Knees - So gorgeous and soooo delicious.

    Katrina Mauro · February 24, 2013
  • Caitlin C.

    Try the hot chocolate... as seen on "Girls" :)

    Caitlin Clements · February 10, 2013

    Famous in the coffee shop working community long before it became famous through HBO's Girls. Greenpoint haunt with top coffee and tea, big tables, pleasant vibe.

    Not a lot of places to relax and stretch out, but very good drip coffee and great service!

    This, the original branch of Cafe Grumpy, is a favorite spot of ours for good coffee and getting work done. Lots of tables, a smattering of plugs, and sometimes overwhelmed wifi. Top notch baked goods Read more

    Pay with Square! Also, the banana bread has a pleasant spicy kick.
