    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.)

    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")

    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

    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.

    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

    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

    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.

    I want this coffee shop to the my perk cafe where my friends and I hang out everyday and complain about how hard it is to be white and single in 2016, the interior is amazing

    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.

    When you get the urge to camp out here (and you will), make sure to equip yourself with Rocket Fuel, a chicory-laced cold brew topped off with whole milk and maple syrup. Read more

    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."

    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!

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    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.

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

    The atmosphere is unique and antique-y. The coffee is great and the baked goods are to die for. Definitely recommend stopping by.

    Cosy place, I order the famous rocket fuel but I think they didn't mixed it well as it didn't taste like maple syrup nor chicory. Nice place tough.

    Since it doubles as a bar, Sweetleaf's third location in Hunters Point, Queens has lots of nooks & crannies for laptop work, free wifi, and a few plugs. Read more

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

    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.

    If you're into music, Sweetleaf is a great place to relax with a coffee in hand whilst browsing through the records.

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

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

    Love the decaying Victorian living room feel. Obviously the coffee is amazing but so are the blueberry muffins.

    Cash Only! Seating is limited, but you'll find the typical line up of caffeinated drinks and pastries.

    Most people order to go, but it's best to stay, so you can talk to the bar guy and listen to Philip Glass.

    Cash only, but there's an ATM next door outside The Creek (no ATM charge if you use Simple Bank, BAM)

    Rightfully known for excellent coffee, but their carrot cake is what makes the trip to Queens worthwhile!

    Great late spot. Bartenders are seriously 'mixologist'. Fantastic night. Try the East LA fizz.

    Coffee was not good at all. Very weak and a bad aftertaste. They do not accept credit cards. The place is cute though.

    The pour over is worth the trip alone also keep an eye out for hidden gluten free treats

    Order VooDoo Child if you enjoy a nice Vietnamese iced coffee and pair with a dessert.

    My life will never be the same after going here. All other coffee tastes like swill after stopping into Sweetleaf on a whim.
