The hunt for cute places to sip coffee is on this spring, and today I want to show you one of my favorite little hangs in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Central Cafe is bursting with rustic charm. I spent many mornings recovering from hangovers in their backyard, sipping their deeeelicious ice coffee.
Pretty much everything inside is Instagram-worthy, but the back yard’s pink brick wall and flourishing greenery is what had me hooked.
Oh, and good food.
The Café: Central Cafe
The deets: 108 Central Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11206. Monday-Friday 7am—7pm, Saturday & Sunday 8am—7pm.
The perks: Some of the best coffee in Bushwick, with great sandwiches named after local streets (aw, quirk! My fave is the Wilson: pancetta, arugula, parmigiana, tomato with tahini sauce on rosemary ciabatta). Try the peanut butter latte while you’re there.
You’ll also find a ‘gram-able floor, rustic charm abound. Everything is lived-in and cozy. A mosaic coffee table and a pile of books will have you dreaming up DIY projects for your own apartment.
Did I mention the incredible cherry blossoms you’ll find in the backyard when they’re in season? So beautiful!
Alright, so the backyard isn’t pristine. But I LOVE it.
It’s perfect for reclining with your breakfast and hiding from other people. It’s hidden down a narrow alley through the back door, so some patrons don’t even know it exists.
