    The flat white is the best I have had so far in Manhattan or Brooklyn!

    I love this place. I love the design of everything (colors, materials, presentation, vibe), the best avocado toast I’ve had, a great flat white, and friendly Aussies. Wi-Fi password is “coolbeans”.

    Cute spot, very very hip and cozy. The staff were pretty curt with me unnecessarily, but the barista was nice. Counter culture done right, but mediocre and overpriced food imo.
  • Erika P.
    Fantastic space, great menu. Flat white w macadamia is TDF. Avocado toast looks insane, will be back.

    This Aussie-run café is located right off the Bedford stop in Brooklyn. Usually packed, but never pretentious. Order the Sparky: espresso + club soda + lime. Read more

    The only "SWEATSHOP" in the world filled with model-esque white people "working" on their Mac books. Insensitive ironic name / good coffee.

    Deliciously smooth cold brew! They make a good Cortado too. The chairs have funky designs on them, and give the shop a trendy, cool feel in a cozy space.

    Really small space so it will likely be crowded. Worth going to for the staff's super rad Aussie accents.

    This Australian café is a hole in the wall - it's located at basement level. You have to get the Aussie iced coffee. It's espresso poured over vanilla bean ice cream AND milk 😍

    Cool place to work. Flat white is great. But do come with your laptop charged : they only have a handful of power sockets, and they're not exactly easy to reach.

    This is honestly the best cafe in Brooklyn. New York for that matter. Flat white & avo smash or Morno toastie.

    Well it's called the Sweatshop with good reason... No A/C. But, they have all the right drinks to help you cool down. I went with the Esky! $5.75

    Really good Australian coffee shop with friendly staff. They use the Southern Hemisphere terms - an 'espresso' is a 'Short Black'. They serve great coffee in stylish cups.

    They have Flat Whites on the menu, so you won't look nearly as pretentious ordering one here, as you normally do elsewhere, ya snob.

    Australian coffee offered in a trendy, low-key ambiance. Try their Flat Whites or their tea, which is served in individual teapots.
