I never thought this place would open - it was "coming soon" for many months and man, what a bad economy to open a place, especially one like this. As you can guess from the name, they offer two things, one of which is considerably less in demand these days. The coffee bar is up front and sports a Clover coffee maker, which you can read about here. It was fun to watch my single drip-brewed coffee being made by the Clover, freshly-ground beans and all, but truth be told, it just tasted like a cup of coffee to the kid.
The back of the place is a gi-normous art gallery, with a smattering of art and a few small tables and chairs. I sat back here, sipped my coffee, surfed on the free wifi and read the paper. Man, what a nice place this would have been during the go-go years of say, like, three years ago or so....
I just don't see how this place will survive. I hope I'm wrong, because they got a lot of the little things right - free wifi and an electrical outlet for each table. I would like nothing more than to come here, surf the net, sip coffee, eat some snacks, look at the art and peoplewatch. Puffin, you better get over here to Brooklyn and check it out, while you can!
