    Southside sandwich-delicious and filling. Probably the best breakfast sandwich in Brooklyn. Worth coming even if you don't live in the hood.

    They do 5 very different takes on the egg sandwich, best in the city. If I had to choose I would go splitty-splitty on the 295 and the Sausage.

    Easy to miss this place. They don't advertise how incredible their coffee is. They just have it. Great breakfast sandwiches too.

    Scrambled eggs, Heritage Meats ham, Cheddar, pickled onion, and a compulsively edible redeye-gravy-like mayo on a brioche roll.

    Americanos are delicious. The baristas are great. They recently opened a sandwich bar that looks fantastic but I haven't tried yet.

    Get anything espresso-based. They also use Geroge Howell beans (not to be confused with George Orwell...).

    Good coffee. Just had a latte and a tasty pound cake slice. Yum yum. Always a quiet place to get serious work done. Plus the baristas are all super nice.

    Some of the most flavorful espresso in the area. Not bitter at all, so the cortado or the macchiato are the BEST.

    Outstanding cappuccino. Some places might even call this a cortado. Whatever it is, it's perfect. Killer croissants, too. From Balthazar, I think.

    A rotating cast of super-high-quality roasters, including most recently Counter Culture Coffee, 49th Parallel and George Howell's Terroir, fill out the very simple, espresso-heavy menu.

    The crema on the americano here is amazing... Add 1/2 & 1/2 and tastes like drinking mild sweet chocolate.

    Photographer Sam Horine calls it "a unicorn" (we're surprised he's not the Mayor). A knowledgeable, unpretentious staff. Pro tip: Sunday morning they do homemade cinnamon buns and bacon cheddar buns.

    Went in for a coffee today. They turned me away. Told me they were closing early. They must be doing better than most in this quickly diminishing economy.
