Black Brick Coffee – Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Last week Madeline and I spent the morning in Brooklyn. The main purpose of our trip was to see Clare at Arrojo. Before and after our appointments we checked out four pretty cool coffee shops. Our first stop was Black Brick on Bedford Avenue. We found it after seeing it on the instagram of Coffee Cups of the World.
Look up, down, everywhere there were details not to be missed in this eclectic shop.
It took almost 90 minutes in morning traffic from Connecticut so I sort of knew I might not make a healthy choice. Boy, was this a great place to start. The dulce de lece donut was worth every calorie. We chose a seat at the window. I’m not sure why some seats are designated as computer free tables, but we were okay with that. Clare mentioned later that we missed the secret garden in back. I guess maybe they sensed we were not locals…and therefore the garden remained a secret?
Next stop, Sweatshop on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg.
