    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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

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

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

    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".

    Weak coffee drinkers need not apply. Their cup of joe has the strength to satisfy those bitter-loving drinkers. If you can handle, bring your laptop for some caffeine and free wifi. Read more

    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.

    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)

    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.

    Coffee is good, nice comfortable set up. Lots of chairs and tables, you won't be crouched.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    the Capps here are to die for. well worth the line or the wait. go after 6pm, and you'll not wait long.
  • Megan G.
    Great Latte, go for the large so you can have extra milk steamed to pillowy perfection

    Fantastic cortado. Probably don't bother with the chocolate chip oatmeal cookie; it looks better than it tastes.

    If you're in the mood for a snack, don't get it here, walk down the block to Blue Sky Bakery for an amazing muffin!
  • Marina Noelia C.
    Come here for work, coffee is great and wifi too. Not too sure about the snacks

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

    They've taken a lot of stuff off the menu since I've been here last :( but its still my favorite coffee place ever. Iced mocha is heaven in a cup.

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

    Holy crowds Bat Man! However, if you need a STRONG pick-me-up, get a house coffee or their awesome iced coffee.

    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.

    I got a free cup of coffee for buying a bag of beans. A thick, tasty coffee.

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

    Wouldn't call it the best in BK, but their signature drink (the maple latte) is worth a trip.

    I've never been given a bad recommendation by the staff when ordering whole beans for myself or as a gift.

    Asked whether their coffee is fair trade; turns out most is but their moving to direct trade, which I never even heard of but sounds possibly better. GTK!

    Get the pourover or espresso drink. Drip is pretty hard to drink.

    Try the Macchiato - Little bit butter for me... But the taste was good.
