Seeing as how I've just about conquered all the Manhattan cafes in the coffee list on The Scoop app (whoops - perhaps I could have paced myself a little better), it was about time I dipped my toes beyond Blue Bottle in the Brooklyn list. It was a beautiful day (except too chilly) yesterday to walk across the Williamsburg bridge and wander around a neighborhood I'm completely unfamiliar with. Everything was terribly cute and charming, it made me squirm a little bit.
There were some cool spots with fantastic light on the bridge for portraits. :)
We headed to Bakeri which is tucked away on a pretty quiet street. Not that this usually stops me, but having had enough coffee to wake the dead already that day, I opted for some green roobois tea and a slice of pumpkin spice bread (not pictured here). JJ had the butternut squash and feta tart with orange spice tea. We found that our teas paired much better with the other's food dish. Ah well! This place killed me a little bit with its character and coziness. Everything is super mis-matchy, a bit rustic and Anthropologie-feeling. Old-fashioned trinkets line the walls and decorate the floors. Naturally, we didn't leave empty-handed after seeing the cookie selection. I must revisit for coffee and more baked goods - the selection is just too great.
