Opened by Frankies duo Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli of Spuntino fame, with Stumptown founder Duane Sorensen, Cafe Pedlar is a bright, airy coffeehouse with a vintage feel. Creamy wainscoted walls, hanging frosted glass lamps, slate floors and a wood counter embody Brooklyn’s ubiquitous, old-is-new culinary aesthetic. Inside are a few tables and a bar with wood and metal stools, rustic mirrors on the walls, and blossoming branches in the windows. Named after a decades old grocery next door whose owner, Vincent “Jimmy” Cincotta, used to sell produce from a cart, the café adopted the old-fashioned “pedlar” spelling and now serves as a neighborhood magnet for coffee fanatics. There’s regular drip, but most orders come from the La Marzocco espresso machine, where barristers carefully craft Stumptown blends enriched with Hudson Valley milk. An ever-changing lineup of edibles like banana spelt bread, gingery stout cake, hearty “camping” rolls filled with raisins, and sandwiches like mozzarella, tomato and arugula on dark rye bread round out the offerings.
