I was looking for a place to get a quick mid-afternoon bite near my hotel but nothing caught my attention until I stumbled on this wonderful little café. The savory crêpes looked so delicious I had to try one. The cafe may be tiny but the crepes are big and filling. The chef (proprietor?) was kind and attentive. The place... More

Every time we stay in Brooklyn, this is the first port of call. The owners are wonderful, friendly adorable people. Their staff are always friendly and whilst its small, its a lovely place when its cold, wet and snowy. The hot chocolate is the stand-out item and Masoud's cookies are also to-die-for (when you can get them!)

I loved this place, it's a hidden gem. Very small and only houses about 10 inside and a few outside. Portions are large and tasty. They are very generous with their mimosas!

My favorite places for coffee croissants and crepes in a little space on the corner owned by a nice guy ready to tell a story while you wait for your crepes.

We popped in here on a Saturday lunchtime for a drink a bite to eat. We found a small, quaint coffee house, which is as big as a sitting room. It offers the usual drink selection but has home made cakes and cookies as well as hot and cold crepes. So if you fancy something different to the usual "chain"... More

Cosy place with friendly staff and the best crepes and focaccia this side of the Atlantic. Only seats 10-12, no computers or WLAN.

A tiny place, with lot's of charm. A delightful escape from the city streets. Don't go with too large a group. The total seating is about 10 people, maybe less. Coffee and sweets are available, but we stopped in for lunch. I had the prosciutto sandwich and it was great! It is a small menu, but, after all, it is... More

The cafe itself was really lovely and the guy who worked there was super sweet. Good was really yummy but menu was a bit limited, and because there was only one guy on our food took ages. Probably more of a catch up with one friend rather than a whole group outing
