The most exciting part about having a ton of things to get done? Finding great coffee shops to get it done in.
This can sometimes be a challenge. A lot of places with good coffee do not run with the “stay here for a long time” slogan. And often places that embrace the “stay here for a long time” concept have bad coffee. How do you make the sacrifice? You don’t.
Today’s neighborhood: Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Here are a couple of my favorite spots at the moment.
This place breeds Macbook Airs. It also breeds outstanding coffee. They brag about being the only “exclusively farm-to-table coffee roaster in the world.” I didn’t fact-check on this one, but it tasted pretty accurate. Warning: no wifi on the weekend, so bring your hotspot or a book, or just come during the week.
Black Brick Coffee
If you have a grandfather who hunts, for some reason I feel like this coffee shop looks just like his office. It has a rustic, log cabin feel to it, which is really nice when the snow is coming down outside. The people here are very kind, and they use Stumptown coffee, which is always nice. All laptop users have to sit in the backroom so that the front keeps that authentic, coffee shop style. Wait until you see the back patio.
Toby’s Estate Brooklyn
So we were just in your grandfather’s log-cabinesque office. Now we are in your mother’s living room. And your mom has company over–a lot of guys with man-buns. Oh wait, that’s cause we are in Williamsburg. Toby’s Estate is adorable. It is very community-driven and eco-friendly, which we all like here in New York. They roast coffees from all over the world, and bring it to you right here in a cup.
Put a fork in it.
