    Nice happy hour - $5 wines, $4 well drinks, $2 off beers and cocktails.

    Latte was barely warm with a very weak shot, pulled by a guy who didn't know what he was doing. At over $4 per drink, go anywhere else for better coffee at a better price!

    Huge and cavernous interior, great for groups. Employees are so stoned they can't remember what you ordered a minute after you place your order and can't assemble said order correctly.

    Seriously the absolute least-organized, least-capable staff I have seen in a long time. I seriously just had to figure out whose order was whose and deliver it to the customers myself.

    Open wifi, live music acts, and a coffee-house-meets-wine-bar vibe are among the reasons that laptop toting freelancers all happy hour seekers continue to pack the couches here.

    Great "work from home" office (free WiFi, ton of outlets, cheap coffee), but sit on those gnarly couches at your own peril -- you're guaranteed to leave smelling like musty hippie armpit c. 1969.

    Tea Lounge feels oddly like it belongs in Portland or Seattle. Massive space, and very mishmash/bohemian interior. Fantastic co-working spot. Unremarkable but decent coffee and food.

    One of the best places in Brooklyn to do work in. Lots of tables, couches, and wifi. The atmosphere is laid back enough that you can stick around here for hours without being weird.

    Love the tuna melt w/ cheddar on sourdough bread. Don't sit in the back area (near the bar) if it's getting close to 7pm b/c you'll have to move for the live band/artists at night. Many power outlets.

    Great place to meet a group, bc seats are usually available. Tea is good and outlets are usually available. BUT not my first choice. The bathroom scares me, as do the grimy couch cushions.

    Try the tuna melt or the caprese sandwich. And the chocolate chai tea is to die for, especially if you're iffy about teas.

    Great place, but getting a bagel takes forever! Even if it's empty on holiday weekends. Either their toaster is crazy slow or they week-after-week forget they put a bagel in there.
