It's been way too long since I featured a new coffee shop on here! After seeing A Life Worth Eating's favorite espresso list of 2011, we knew a visit to Sweetleaf was in order. While it's not the stone's throw away that Abraco is, yesterday was the perfect day (at some 60 whopping degrees) to make a trip out to Long Island City.
The space is awesome in that rustic-chic kind of way, which obviously I love so much. J tried the espresso shot - Stumptown's single origin Ethiopian Mordecofe, while I got a cortado. Then we basked in the glorious afternoon light.
Next week, we're going to try to make it to #4 on that list - Kickshaw in Astoria.
