Brooklyn Coffee Shops

Brooklyn Coffee Shops is a city that knows how to brew a cup of joe. Whether you’re sipping on your morning latte in an open-air converted warehouse space with world-class sound systems or chowing down on a vegan coconut milk yogurt acai bowl at one of the squat tables inside an old converted auto repair shop in Clinton Hill, the borough’s best cafes deliver an alluring blend of flavor, atmosphere and community.

Located on the border of Bed-Stuy and Ocean Hill, Daily Press Coffee is a classic neighborhood spot that serves up perfectly-made cappuccinos, cortados, cold brew, plus pastries like cheddar and chive biscuits, almond croissants, and Belgian waffles. It’s a place where you can sit for hours catching up with a friend or powering through a work session on your laptop.

Brooklyn’s Brew Haven: A Tour of its Coffee Shops

Zatar Coffee – Multiple Locations, including 368 Graham Avenue, 146 Wyckoff Avenue and 145 Driggs Avenue, Brooklyn – This Bushwick spot is more than just a cafe, it’s a micro-roastery that offers weekly public cuppings. Grab a seat in the bright and airy warehouse-like cafe for some people watching (the walls are covered with black benches) and enjoy a latte made from their specially blended beans.

This Park Slope-based coffee chain is a true hidden gem, thanks to its diminutive size and cozy interior. Pair your flat white or iced chai with a brikkie bun, avo smash or a co-yo and cozy up at one of the repurposed milk crate tables. And don’t leave without a little something to take home; they carry a selection of merch including “death before decaf” tees, hand-poured, BK-made soy wax candles and cool beans dad caps.
