    Has vegan pastry options, and unique, goth-y decor. Found seating fairly easily on a Sunday afternoon (with three "separate" seating areas - check out the record room in the back.)
  • Project Latte: a NYC cafe culture guide
    There's free wifi, the best coffee in Queens & some of the best in NYC (from a variety of indie roasters), house-made baked goods, sandwiches, a laptop room and a turntable room. Friendly staff. Read more

    What a gem. I came across this spot by chance and I love it. Fantastic pastries and lattes. Snag a seat in the record room where you can listen to a great collection of vinyl.

    Always heard great things about this place so had to try it out - didn't disappoint. Interior is rustic, has a "laptop room" "dining room" and "record room" (Try the "RocketFuel")

    An unpretentious cafe? Go on! No. Really. Go there, everything's good, the banter is real and the music is good.

    Rocket fuel is amazing. Raspberry oat bar is the stuff of dreams. The donuts are sweet and delicious little cinnamon spiked dough balls that dance a fine line between cake and yeast.

    This is a great coffee shop that offers delicious drinks and hand-crafted cocktails at night. Try the Strawberry Black Iced Tea & the refreshing Long Island City special!
  • Project Latte: a NYC cafe culture guide
    Now with three shops, two in LIC and one in the growing western edge of Williamsburg, Sweetleaf has begun roasting at a secret Brooklyn location but will unveil their roastery to the world soon.

    There are only 3 window seats, but the window counter juts onto the sidewalk, providing a view of 3 intersecting thoroughfares and the Pulaski Bridge. Wifi, quality coffee & in-house baked goods. Read more

    Great coffee and courteous staff. Funky retro decor in back room. Use Designated area for laptops but make sure battery is fully charged. No outlet usage. Like that theres a sink near front to wash

    Eater: "Here’s the Rocket Fuel, cold brew spiked with chicory, maple syrup, and milk, and the Voodoo Child, a Vietnamese-style iced coffee made with sweetened condensed milk."

    The voodoo child served hot is a frothy, sweet Vietnamese coffee. Tasty and reminiscent of Philz in SF.

    Primes seasonal espresso is a must try!! Seriously the best coffee I've ever tried, so smooth with a hint if cherry to it. Overall this is a great spot!

    Brew of choice: Stumptown Coffee. Relax with a book, put on a record in the back, plug into the laptop table, but whatever you do, don't leave without a Cinnamon Puff.

    Really nice coffee shop, great vibe, retro. Nice ice coffee. Apparently at night it becomes a bar.

    Still a little rough around the edges, but already popular with the locals, this third branch of Sweetleaf is a daytime coffee shop, nighttime Dutch Kills spinoff craft cocktail bar. Read more

    This original, expanded location maintains a darling, factory-salvaged common table dedicated to the laptop crowd exclusively.

    Great coffee, cool tunes, chill vibe. However, despite having a dedicated "laptop room" there isn't a single outlet available to customers.

    Stop by after you've had your dose of MOMA PS1 or 5Pointz graffiti art. This place has soul, serves mean coffee and has wifi.

    Strawberry iced tea (black tea shaken with strawberry puree) is a bit pricy at $4.25, but incredibly delicious and refreshing.

    If you like sugar and apple cider, the apple cider doughnut holes are delicious, even for $1.

    Pick up a bag of coffee to take home. Sometimes can be a little too "hip", so swing down to their 2nd location for a little more space.

    Best brewed coffee (Stumptown) in Long Island City. Whether reading the newspaper in the front or playing a record in the back, Sweetleaf is the perfect place to check in and relax.

    If you're looking for a place to work on your laptop- this place isn't ideal. They have a designated 'laptop room' without any plugs.

    Solid coffee (Sightglass), sorta strange space (shared with a real estate office), but shitty $5 minimum for cards. For a $4.75 coffee, stingy. This is 2012 guys.
