Except for during that precious week or so set aside for vacation, our regular schedules involve us waking up way earlier than we’re ready to, and somehow, keeping going until well into the night. The solve here, of course, is to obediently fuel our bodies over and over again with high octane espresso and coffee, starting first thing in the morning, with multiple re-ups in the afternoon to get over the mid-day slump. Heck, many of us even work out of coffee shops, as an excuse to get out of our musky jammies for once and pretend to be contributing members of society. So if you’re already on track to becoming better acquainted with your baristas than you are with certain members of your family, don’t waste your time and money in a Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. From their excellent caffeinated drinks to above-average food and extra amenities (including the all-important free WiFi), we’ve rounded up our favorite coffee bars in Brooklyn.
