Sweetleaf Coffee Roasters is one of the best coffee shops in the neighborhood. Probably the best coffee in Greenpoint. And best of all this place is a central hub for Greenpointers. It is a 3rd wave coffee shop that imports and roasts its own coffee beans. People mention this place as “Such a cool vibe and cozy feeling with great coffee and ambiance that you could sit there for hours and hours.” (If you can find a seat to sit of course) Because it is a very popular spot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The atmosphere of the coffee shop is great old school, relaxing and perfect for a rest with a sip of coffee.
It’s also a great place for hanging out with friends, doing some work, etc. Sweetleaf Coffee Roasters is busy in the mornings but a great place to chill in the afternoons. They have also signature drinks. Besides, there are plenty of healthy (vegan) food options. (They have vegan eggs for example) They serve various pastries and they all look delicious. The baristas and the workers are so friendly and cheerful.
Sweetleaf Coffee Roasters also has an outside patio that’s great on warmer days.
The best drink here is NOT on the menu: Order 1/2 iced Voodoo Child™ & 1/2 iced Rocketfuel™
Also, they have dog treats.
Recommended: Smoked Salmon Toast
From the Sweetleaf Coffe Roasters Web Site: “Sweetleaf was founded in 2008 by Rich Nieto, a Queens native who wanted to roast coffee that reflects New York City: diverse, sophisticated, and decidedly unique. Great coffee isn’t just consumed; it’s experienced. At Sweetleaf, we are continually experimenting and refining to create a distinct experience that sets us apart.“
