Favorite coffeeshop: The Brooklyn Roasting Company
We had visited another, more exclusive looking coffeeshop called La Colombe, but BRC stole my heart. I didn’t want to visit the same place twice, but this cafe was a happy exception. Not only was it large and, to my unpracticed eyes, well designed, it also had the most friendly baristas that I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Every one of them was extremely personable, and even gifted my friend a free drink for her birthday.
