Best Park Slope Coffee Shops

Velvette Brew

Velvette Brew Cafe in Park Slope Brooklyn

Address: 279 5th Ave

This beautiful Park Slope cafe is located on 5th Avenue with a gorgeous giant mural of a woman sipping on a cup of coffee. This is their second location in Brooklyn and they pride themselves on being an espresso bar.

This is a great Park Slope coffee shop to work from as there are plenty of tables, outlets, and it’s pretty quiet and mellow inside.

They’ve got a great coffee selection and a great food menu featuring soups, salads, pastries, and other fun dishes like one of our favorites, shakshuka.

Daily 7:00 am – 6:00 pm

Grounded Cafe

Address: 198 75th Ave

Located within Brooklyn Flow, a wellness center that specializes in yoga classes, is one of the most beautiful Park Slope cafes yet. Grounded Cafe is minimalistic, yet the subtle details and color in here create an inviting and warm ambiance.

Their menu items reflect and stay true to their wellness-oriented location, with acai bowls and smoothies on the menu, this is a place for nourishment and your much needed caffeine-fix.

They proudly serve Partners coffee beans and have your staple espresso-based coffee drinks along with drip coffee and cold brews. In addition, they have specific drinks like apple cider vinegar tonics, cracked pepper maple lattes, chaggachino (made of chagga mushrooms) to name a few.

Daily 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, open at 8 AM on weekends

Postmark Cafe

Address: 326 6th Street

One of our favorite cozy neighborhood Park Slope coffee shops is Postmark Cafe off 5th Ave on 6th St. This comfortable cafe is a great place to bring your laptop and sip on a fresh brew and one of their bagel sandwiches, we personally love the pesto and mozzarella one.

Run by Church! of Park Slope, a community-run religious organization as a not-for-profit cafe. This adorable spot is popular among people who work remotely as the atmosphere here is non pretentious and inviting.

Besides offering up great coffee choices, there are also sweet treats and sandwiches on the menu. Also in addition to coffee, you can get Italian soda, hot cocoa, and tea.

All tips given to baristas here are donated to charity as well! Do you need any more reasons to love this Park Slope cafe? Postmark Café offers both indoor and outdoor dining options.

Monday – Friday 7:30 am – 4:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Cafe Regular

Address: 158 Berkeley Place

Cafe Regular is another cute and cozy Park Slope cafe that has one of the best coffee shop facades around. There’s definitely a European/French vibe going on here and you can pair your cup of coffee, or tea with one of the selections of pastries they sell served alongside their La Colombe coffee drinks.

This small Park Slope coffee shop literally loves their regulars and even does a Cafe Regular spotlight along with their stories on their website. How cute is that?

The cafe is rather small, but there are a few small tables indoors and some sidewalk seating out front. This isn’t the best place to bring a laptop to but a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of their classic coffees and teas with a friend or while reading the news.

Daily 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Couleur Cafe

Address: 435 7th Ave

This Park Slope cafe is a lot more than a place to grab a great cup of coffee. Serving up classics like espressos, lattes, French press, and cortado to name a few of their several options this is a full-on restaurant as well and the perfect brunch spot – or lunch!

Couleur Cafe has a romantic feel to it and serves up amazing dishes from its French-inspired menu. The ambiance, presentation, and vibe in here is perfection with both indoor and outdoor sidewalk seating.

Besides serving up coffee and tea drinks Couleur Cafe also has a cocktail menu and full bar with an impressive wine selection.

So next time you need a good date spot whether it be brunch or dinner, this is your spot!

Daily 8:00 am – 6:00 pm


Address: 186 5th Ave

This rustic Park Slope coffee shop is run by Swedish Brooklynites who named their cafe after a Swedish word meaning a gathering place for warm drinks, or where to take a coffee break. Seems fitting!

This Park Slope cafe was their very first location but they also have a spot in Cobble Hill.

The vibrant and bright decor and delicious coffee oozes the feeling of happiness. They serve up a fantastic coffee selection with Arabic beans from Central America serving everything from French press to espresso alongside some baked treats, both Swedish and American from bagels to coffee bread.

For anyone who has a gluten-free diet, Konditori has a selection of GF treats as well!

You can’t help but enjoy this chill space decked out with vintage furniture and decor from old cool refrigerators from the 60s, copper counters, and wooden doors repurposed as tables.

Daily 7:00 am – 5:00 pm

Colson Patisserie

Address: 374 9th St

This favorite Park Slope cafe is actually more of a pastry shop specializing in French pastries, Belgian waffles, and other baked goods with a cult following. With a selection of pastries that change hourly, as they make them, sometimes you’ll see lines out the door!

This Belgian and French pastry shop also serves the finest drip coffee, espresso, and cold brew from Brooklyn Roasting Company pairing perfectly with their mouthwatering pastries, sandwiches, and salads. Just note that breakfast is offered only until 1:00 pm and lunch is served only until 2:30 pm with only grab and go options available until closing time.

As they say, early bird gets the worm and that’s the case for Colson Patisserie, we recommend going early to have the largest selection before items sell out. Don’t stress too much as new things are being added by the hour as well.

If you’re looking for something sweet they have those too, we personally love grabbing their fresh-baked baguettes to go as well.

They also have Gluten-Free and Vegan options available too.

Monday – Thursday 7:30 am – 4:00 pm; Friday – Sunday 7:30 am – 5:30 pm

Cafe Martin

Address: 355 5th Ave

Another cozy Park Slope café and another great coffee shop with a picturesque facade on 5th Avenue is Cafe Martin. This classic Park Slope coffee shop has an inviting and relaxed vibe all while serving up delicious coffee. Unlike most cafes, Cafe Martin doesn’t offer Wi-Fi to its customers, so don’t come here planning to write your next novel as you sip on coffee all day. This is a more intimate coffee experience.

Don’t let that deter you though, Cafe Martin is said to have the best espresso of all Park Slope coffee shops. You’ll have to try and let us know.

We love the laidback vibe here, which the owners have done well both here and their other Park Slope cafe location, Cafe Regular which is also another cozy Park Slope coffee shop we recommend!

Try one of their classic coffees paired with their French pastry selection.

Southside Coffee serves George Howell small-batch, artisan coffee which only uses regional and single farm-sourced quality coffee.

Roots Cafe serves Forty Weight Coffee Roasters from Ithaca, New York, and serve their coffee based on its peak freshness so you’re having the best, rich flavors in a cup of coffee money can buy.

Kos Kaffe Roasting House

Coffee in Kos Kaffe Park Slope Brooklyn
Address: 251 5th Ave

This Park Slope cafe is more than a coffee shop, Kos Kaffe Roasting House claims they provide the marriage food and coffee on their website. This family-run Park Slope cafe prides itself on a being an inviting place for their community and neighborhood.

We are obsessed with the atmosphere here as well as the gorgeous flower mural on the side of the cafe.

The husband and wife team are a dynamic duo as he has been into coffee roasting for over two decades and she has spent the same amount of time cooking at some of the best NYC restaurants and is an author of two cookbooks.

They serve up homemade food alongside their fresh and flavorful coffee menu, which you know is going to be good based on their backgrounds.

They even use local milk to accompany your cup of house-roasted joe made by their dedicated baristas. What we love about this Park Slope cafe is that they are completely cool with customers relaxing and staying a bit making it a nice spot to work from for a few hours while sipping on coffee and enjoying a tasty fresh cooked meal.

Be aware that there are sections of this Park Slope coffee shop that are for people who want to stay and work here and a section that is a laptop free zone. Don’t worry though, there is alot of space for people who want to work here!

Techne Kafe

Address: 410 7th Avenue

Techne Kafe is an idyllic coffee shop on 7th Avenue. Just like so many other places on this list, it is a small space that is perfect to grab your cup of coffee to go and be on your way. They do have a bench outdoors with a cute umbrella if you’re interested in enjoying coffee at one of the best Park Slope cafes.

I love an iced cappuccino and I’ve found very few places who are able to do a cappuccino iced and let alone a good one. Techne Kafe defies those odds. They also have some of the nicest staff around and make you feel like you’re a regular the minute you walk in.

If you want something other than coffee, they also make a delicious matcha latte and chai latte and have some amazing pastries and desserts as well.

Daily from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm

Casita of Brooklyn

Address: 318 11th Street

Newer to the neighborhood but quickly becoming a great in Park Slope cafes is Casita of Brooklyn. Casita’s tagline is “home is not a place, it’s a feeling” and that is felt in every aspect of this Park Slope café. They also might have the nicest owners around, making this place even more special!  

All the pastries and food are handmade and all equally delicious and inspired from the owner’s Latin and Greek roots.  Definitely order the sweet cold brew. It is the perfect amount of cold brew and the perfect amount of sweet. In addition, do not leave without trying their guava empanadas. They are handmade to perfection.

Casita of Brooklyn offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The indoor seating is limited but they have a covered outdoor area that can almost seem like you are indoors, especially with the heaters in the cooler months. They also have regular events like Greek night or Latin night where they offer dinner, drinks and dancing, which are always very fun to attend.

OS Café

OS Café is another one of the amazing coffee shops in Park Slope that is not only very aesthetically pleasing but it also has some of the best coffee in Park Slope. Plant filled with string lights all over this space is not only inviting for a great place to work but it is also a great place to meet with friends for a casual coffee date.

They have all the best coffee options and some unique ones special to them. They can make about anything iced and have different flavors to add to your lattes. OS only serves locally roasted third-wave specialty coffee and bake all of their specialty pastries and treats in house.

Room 205

Address: 205 8th Street

This is a (new) to us Park Slope café and the minute we walked by, we knew it was going to be one of the best coffee shops Park Slope has to offer.

The space is so beautiful and just gives me all the ‘old New York style cafe’ feels with its woodwork, subway tiles, and tin ceiling.

They have several hooks to hang your belongings plus small, round wooden tables and a long bar where you can work or get distracted watching them make coffee. Room 205 also has outdoor seating if that is what you prefer.

Not only do they have delicious coffee but they also have Court Street Grocery sandwiches and pastries if you prefer.
