Coffee is Stumptown, and former Le Bernardin baker Merrin Frazier makes the pastries, both vegan and traditional. But it's the décor, designed by self-proclaimed "object collectors" and owners Paul Degruccio and Craig Kafton, that elevates Second Stop above your standard coffeehouse. Lamps are from JPMorgan's Wall Street office; table bases are from the Oak Room of the Plaza Hotel, tile work was done with century-old tile from vestibules and foyers in brownstones around NYC, and the fireplace mantel was salvaged from Johnny Depp's townhouse in the West Village. Even the seat cushions were retrieved — when the Alexander McQueen store in the meatpacking district threw them out. Finally, a coffee shop in Williamsburg where there's something to look at besides asymmetrical haircuts and Slayer T-shirts.
