Open since December 2008, this bright, European-inspired café serves breakfast all day, as well as lunch, steps from Fort Greene Park. Outside in the back, a peaceful garden with plenty of wooden benches and tables draws a kid-friendly brunch crowd in the summer. The menu includes standard bistro fare like hamburgers served on soft brioche buns, grilled chicken sandwiches, pressed paninis, soups and salads plus Czech and European fare like beef goulash, chicken schnitzel with potato salad, and potato pancakes with sour cream. There’s a full range of espresso coffee drinks and baked goods like poppy-seed strudel, a puffy doughnut-like pastry called koblihy (available on weekends), and chocolate, almond, and plain croissants from nearby Choice Market bakery. Freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies with names like Mango Tango and Guava Mama can be ordered at the front counter to go, or from one of the many tables where aspiring literati and other repeat customers take advantage of free Wi-Fi.
