A homey Williamsburg cafe with Stumptown coffee. – Owner Paul Degruccio can still point out the divots in his café’s old wooden floor, made by his grandparents as they stood near the cash register of the Italian-American grocery store they opened in 1935. Today, it’s populated by Williamsburg’s attractive young hipster set, but yellowed family photos and antique bric-a-brac salvaged from the family-owned building lend a distinctly homey vibe, despite the indie rock playing in the background. Famed Portland roaster Stumptown provides the coffee (a rotating selection of four different beans that changes every two weeks), while ICE grad Merin Frazier bakes an innovative array of pastries in-house.
Great baked goods to go... – It's great to have second stop in the neighborhood - finally someplace to get pie/cakes/cookies/muffins. The walnut cake is moist and delicious, and the glazed blueberry muffin is perfect: tender muffin with crispy lemon glaze on top - yum. I prefer Gimmee's coffee (sorry, Stumptown fans), but the coffee here is still quite good.
The only drag is that unless you get there when they open, you will always have to take your order to go because every inch of table space is occupied by some joker with their laptop, camping out all day and using the place as their office. WiFi etiquette, anyone?
Editorial Review – This cozy, eclectic cafe serves homemade baked goods and the famous Stumptown coffee from Portland, Oregon.
