I go here to work sometimes in the summer, as the coffee is great, and there are plenty of tables for laptops. The back patio is really nice, and is shaded in the summer. The coffee is great; they have cold brewed "nitro" on tap, which you have to try! There's a range of breakfast pastries and bagels as well.

a great selection of pale ales and IPAs for a fantastic evening out drinking with friends. really good prices at $7 for most pints. friendly bartenders and good music with the right balance between cool and simply fun. if, like us, you're a pale ale/IPA fan from europe, come here!

Needed to find a reliable espresso place staying on the edge of Williamsburg, and this place turned out to be it. Nice quad latte, spritely service, sunny-ish patio in back.

I go to West every morning for my coffee. The egg sandwich is divine (and big!). It's a great place to chill out, with either a coffee or a beer / wine. The staff are friendly and good. They often have events and will work with you to arrange something -- we had a wine-and-cheese party there and got rave... More
