No one is lonely at Lonelyville, the cheerful beadboard-and-brick coffee shop across from Prospect Park in Windsor Terrace. Along with its Seussian name, the shop has a definite retro vibe: Vintage thermoses line the walls, old postcards show scenes of the park way back when—it used to have a deer farm!—and large jars of penny candy (now an inflated 10¢) are a hit with neighborhood kids. In fact, the whole place is: Double strollers are as common as double macchiatos. Owners Sara Nahas and Kallan Kagan, TV and movie producers-turned-java-peddlers who live upstairs, have even turned a few of the local children into little latte apprentices. And there’s a lot to learn: Nahas and Kagan attended a barista academy in Portland, Oregon, to learn how to brew their own brand of Lonelyville coffee just right. Supplied by a local roaster, the medium-dark blend is available for sale by the pound; there’s also the standard array of baked goods (croissants, scones, muffins), as well as H&H bagels, and a few crisp salads. But most people come less for the food than for the leafy view and the cozy, kid-friendly company; as Kagan puts it, “we’re a real mom-and-mom shop.”
