    Woah. The espresso had to've been roasted in the lowest pit of Hades. Let it burn. Good bagels, though.

    Latte was very fragrant and aromatic! But a tad bit on the strong side an definitely not for weak stomachs. Great atmosphere for chilling and finding shade from the hot sun.

    There's a reason this place has more available tables than other coffee shops in the area. It's like a high school cafeteria in here.

    Small soy latte $3.75 with musky and chocolate notes and well-foamed milk. Friendly service and cosy and rustic space that was buzzing. One of the better cafes on Bedford.

    Great coffee place in one of the most exciting neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Good for hipster watching and a perk up before a show at the Music Hall. Check out the view from the waterfront too.

    The espresso is not even drinkable. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar, or has lost their sense of taste
