My friend and I were going to go to Bocca, but it was closed so we found this place in the hood. It is sparsely decorated, which I really like, except for there was nowhere to sit. I had the most delicious chai that I've had since I was in India, and my friend that was with me (who is Indian) agreed. She equally loved her coffee. They need to add more seats with drinks that are this good. I had to put the pot on the floor and the cup in my lap. I understand not wanting to crowd the place, but they could easily put in a few more comfy places to sit w/o losing the ambiance.

Finally Caroll Gardens has a good coffee place! I seriously leave Fort Greene (which has super good coffee...bittersweet, choice market) to come here and have a delicious steaming FRENCH-PRESSED cup of Stumptown coffee. And they even have coffee punch cards, and are so savvy that you buy 9, not 10, to get a free cup o' Joe. Thank you portland coffee man for bringing your fine coffee East! The croissants are good, not amazing, and they could use 2-3 extra chairs...although points for the open space feel. And leave the soymilk out so we don't have to constantly request it.

Cafe Peddlar is run by the guy who started Stumptown in Portland and the two Frankies of Spuntino fame. If you've never experienced Stumptown coffee, you owe it to yourself to try it once... it is without comparison. It's strong coffee without being bitter, and I typically relish every last sip of it. The pastries here are also not at all what you'd find at Starbucks: olive oil cakes, delicious stout cake, tasty croissants. This is a really chill addition to the neighborhood where you can actually have a conversation with a friend while enjoying your coffee.
