Park Slope, Brooklyn
837 Union St (at 7th Ave)
Arrived around 10 AM on a saturday morning. Walking through the door, I was struck by a row of mechanical palm leaves fanning the room slowly. Unusual interior. There were plenty of seats (and varied seating, couches, tables, etc.) Au lait was a perfectly reasonable price ($2.25 maybe?) and very tasty. The barista was quick. Most of the customers seemed to be Brooklyn artsy types. Music was slightly too loud, but it was a decent space for studying all-in-all.
Had been reading for a few hours when the strollers started arriving. You can’t make this stuff up…
