Red Horse Cafe
This venue is closed.
Park Slope’s Red Horse Café coffeehouse boasts art-savvy owners, Slope residents Carolina and Brent Whitson, who are also self-described “coffee geeks.” The spot’s impeccable design shows its aesthetic cred: Set on a corner of residential Sixth Avenue, with exposed-brick walls, a large hearth, deep red accents, polished tin tabletops, and recycled artifacts, the café draws neighborhood writers and creative types. But coffee trumps art here, say the Whitsons, who serve beans from Crop to Cup. Teas are from Harney and Sons, and assorted foodstuffs hail from some of the best sources, in town and beyond: Breakfast pastries, granola and quiches come from Baked in Red Hook; South American delicacies both sweet and savory, an edible nod to Carolina’s Chilean roots, come from San Antonio, a Chilean bakery in Queens; the hot chocolate’s from Soho’s Mariebelle; and additional sweets from Chelsea’s Three Tarts. For something more substantial, try the tasty seasonal soups, sandwiches, and savory pies, from DUB Pies in Brooklyn and local caterer RMF.
