    Fun Park Slope local coffee shop and roastery. Delicious, strong cold-brew on a hot summer day. Smooth and sweet, perfect mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Locally-made pastries too. Eat Local Brooklyn! Read more

    One of the first specialty roasters in NYC, this Park Slope, Brooklyn shop has been overshadowed by the flood of new coffee of late but will be coming back strong w/ a Gowanus roastery this year. Read more

    Nice crowd of people. Got their China Long Jing Green Tea, talk about hot... Tried their apple danish; which one of their many pastry selections. It was delicious. Would definitely go back again.

    Great coffee and plenty of space to set up shop. The vibe is lively, so if you are planning to stay for a while and get some work done, you should probably bring your headphones. Read more

    Mocha latte with an extra shot is my fav! And maple latte available for the fall season! Really strong, great tasting coffee

    I usually prefer small cafes, but this coffeehouse has earned it's reputation among the best in NYC. I usually grab a bag of beans to take home when I visit Gorilla Coffee.

    N-Sider Favorite: They have beans from all over the globe to choose from, ample seating, wi-fi,and a staff that really knows what they're doing; its a café that hits all the sweet spots.

    My favorite coffee in the world. My wife and I have actually considered taking it with us abroad. Been in PS 9 years and would drink no other. Take some beans home to try.

    In the charming neighborhood of Park Slope, this coffee shop serves a strong espresso and fresh coffee beans to compliment your busy morning!

    The coffee place for coffee drinkers, specially if you are visiting from Europe and are used to strong stuff. Punk music and ska, so not a real relaxed ambiance

    My new neighbourhood coffee spot. The works are very nice and the coffee shop is every clean. Wifi password is at the register.

    Excellent coffee, dark, strong, well-foamed milk at the right temperature. No extra charge for soy milk either. $3.50 for a small soy latte.

    With the mass of people, it has the vibe of an airport waiting area, substitute CNN for loud indie rock. Strong coffee, as they all say. No outlets for laptops. Wifi pass "k!ngkong".

    Ms HeleneDecember 17, 2012
    Strong coffee with robust flavor. No extra cost for soy milk so $3.50 for a small soy latte. Cosy seating and efficient but not super friendly service. Wifi.

    Gorilla gets No.1 in my book for the taste of the espresso. The apathetic, too-hip-to-serve-you vibe almost landed it in second. Almost. The coffee's that good.

    Some of the baristas come off icy, but give it time. You'll break 'em in. The mocha, hot or iced is worth it.

    Try to grab a seat on the outside red benches with a friend and a coffee of your choice to relax as Park Slope passes by.

    The maple lattes are the perfect midday treat. They offer soy for those of us who arent cow-milk friendly.

    Their maple latte is the perfect fall drink. In the neighborhood bc of Sandy but sad this place isn't by my real apartment!

    One of the better spots in Park Slope for a good, strong coffee. You can't go wrong with the maple latte either.

    A large latte has the same amount of espresso as a small. So get a small or make sure to get an extra shot with your large.

    Great Latte, go for the large so you can have extra milk steamed to pillowy perfection

    A good place to stop in for a quick coffee or latte. Note that it gets pretty packed on weekends.

    Coffee is good, and staff is cool!, the only disadvantage is that you can't charge your laptop, they have locked outlets :(

    Quintessential BK coffee place. Make sure you've eaten before drinking a tall black, or you'll get the shakes for sure.

    Best beans in the nabe as far as I can tell. Their house coffee will put hair on your chest. (that means it's strong) (but in a good way)

    Switched to pre packaged cold brew, so if you order an iced coffee, you get a tetrapak juice box with a plastic cap and a cup full of ice.

    Often go here to pickup beans to use at home. The Sumatran ones are particularly good. Had a latte here twice and both were awful so I stay away from those now.
