Profile

At the sleepy, southern end of Park Slope, where even corner bodegas are few, the addition of a serious java stop can only be appreciated. Opened in 2008 by Josh Sidis and Ben Jones, the plain but welcoming space is a hub where bands of neighbors congregate at a cluster of tables inside or in the narrow outdoor seating area. Kitty-corner to P.S. 295, baristas happily caffeinate local parents with George Howell's Alchemy espressos made on their La Marzocca machine. There are options if you prefer drip: Two seasonally changing single-origin beans each from Counter Culture and Toby's Estate. Every Sunday, sweet, warm cinnamon rolls, gooey with icing, are consumed by the tray. Otherwise, nosh on croissants, muffins, scones, brownies, breakfast bars, and cookies from the ovens at Lot 2, the locavore restaurant across the street co-owned by Jones. While not as resoundly perfect a cuppa as the North Slope favorite, Gorilla Coffee, Southside’s strong brews earn the die-hard loyalty of area locals.
