Devoción Coffee in Brooklyn might just be the prettiest coffee house I’ve ever been to…anywhere. The light shines through the atrium windows in the ceiling above the large open warehouse space to provide a lovely setting and to provide the light needed for the “Green Wall” which takes up the entire end wall of the shop. As soon as you enter the building you see steel and glass windows that look onto the roasting area of this huge shop and immediately you know this place is the real deal. The only other Devoción is the original location in Bogotá, Columbia.
Part of the charm is the attention to every detail including their cups and saucers in sunny yellow. I found these that reminded me of the ones at Devoción. You can purchase their coffee on their website.
The center area which holds two large leather Chesterfield sofas, benches, tables and chairs and the open floor space in this huge warehouse help make this an oasis in the city. While we munched on turkey sandwiches and enjoyed our coffee we noticed people working, talking, reading and even taking a nap. Devoción in Williamsburg is a place you’ll enjoy on a day when it’s beautiful or on a day when the rain is falling and you feel warm and safe inside. The market umbrellas help make this space feel like you are some place tropical. If you are anywhere near Devoción or even if you’re not….make it your destination. The space, the coffee, the food is simply amazing.
Devoción is located at 69 Grand Street at Wythe in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
