What was once an industrial building has now turned into a cozy Williamsburg coffee shop on the bottom floor of a residential loft – which just screams Williamsburg all over it.
An expanded food menu and high-quality cold brews make this Williamsburg cafe the perfect spot to grab an espresso drink.
The inside decor is very cute and fits right into this trendy neighborhood.
Blue Bottle is where you can get a serious quality cup of joe. They only serve coffee less than 48 hours out of the roaster so you know that you’re getting a cup of freshly roasted coffee with peak flavors of the finest responsibly sourced coffee beans. Other types of coffee like blends and espressos are timed perfectly from roasting to sipping for peak flavors as well.
These guys have it down to a science and perfected the coffee experience. This Williamsburg coffee shop has a natural ambiance to it and is the perfect place to grab a coffee to stay in or to take away along with one of their tasty treats.

Address: 189 Roebling Street
For truly one of the most aesthetically pleasing coffee shops in Williamsburg make sure you immediately check out PPL. I’m sure you’ve seen it all over Instagram by now, which to be honest was the original reason I came to check this place out. I was pleasantly surprised though they actually have some of the best coffee in Williamsburg.
The interior is covered in plants, knicknacks (the best kind of knicknacks) and a long counter where you can order your coffee. They also have an outdoor window if you’re with your four legged friend.
Not only do they have delicious coffee, they also have one of my favorite matcha lattes and if you’re looking for some small snacks, don’t leave without trying the matcha scone.
There is no indoor seating and only a couple of benches outside so this is definitely more of a grab and go rather than sit and work spot.
Open every day from 8 am to 5 pm and 9 am to 5 pm on the weekends.
The West Brooklyn
Address: 379 Union Avenue
One of the best Williamsburg cafes that serve not only amazing coffee drinks but cocktails is The West Brooklyn.
Equipped with tons of outlets and barstools make it a perfect workspace for those early mornings or late nights.
This rustic but otherwise homey Williamsburg coffee shop can be deceiving when it turns into a bar at night with a wide selection of tap beer options and other alcoholic beverages.
Grab a coffee (or beer) and watch some of the local artists perform in The West’s very own event space.
It is usually pretty busy on the weekends, so come early if you want a spot.
Open daily 7:00 am – 2:00 am
Address: 95 S 5th Street (South Williamsburg) & 101 N 8th Street (North Williamsburg)
Need a pick me up after your walk through Domino Park or need a pick me up for your walk through Domino Park? Stop into Butler, one of the more upscale Williamsburg cafes that has two locations.
These Williamsburg Brooklyn coffee shops also are one of the best brunch spots in the neighborhood. They also have several locations around the city including a pick as one of our favorite cafes in DUMBO as well!
Don’t believe us? Try some of their various breakfast items or fancy lattes for yourself!

This specific location is home to Partner’s Brew School and Roastery, which allows you to see how the coffee is made and also view their very own cupping lab.
Previously known as Toby’s, this Williamsburg coffee shop has recently rebranded to Partner’s. BUT, that doesn’t change the fact that their coffee is still just as AMAZING.
Try their delicious Brooklyn blend and pair it with one of their tasty pastries (if you’re up to it.)

Oslo Coffee Roasters
Address: 133 Roebling Street & 328 Bedford Avenue
Another Williamsburg cafe that serves incredibly delicious coffee is Oslo Coffee Roasters. In fact, it is so good they have two different locations across Williamsburg, clearly making it one a best Williamsburg coffee shop.
All of their coffee is delicious but they definitely have one of my favorite iced lattes in the city. They also offer great snacks and small bites including blue sky bakery muffins (one of the best bakeries in Park Slope).
Oslo is great for hanging with friends as there is seating inside and outside. It is also a great place to work and laptop friendly.
Open Mondays through Friday 7:30 AM to 4 PM, Weekends 8 AM to 4 PM
Address: 150 Wythe Ave
This quaint and cozy Scandinavian cafe in Williamsburg has not only one but two locations, with one being in Williamsburg and the other being in Greenpoint. Bakeri is a cozy Williamsburg coffee shop, when I say cozy, I mean it is a bit small but packed with character and charm and on a beautiful day you can take advantage of their garden patio outback.
The cafe definitely has a French feel and charm to it and I absolutely love the open-kitchen where you can sense the scents of fresh baked goods straight from the source. Grab a coffee drink of choice, but know that this Williamsburg cafe is known for its fresh baked goods and bread – so don’t skip out on grabbing yourself a treat while you’re here.
Open 7 am – 6 pm Monday – Friday, 8 am – 6 pm weekends
Address: 232 Metropolitan Avenue
Just like so many other Williamsburg coffee shops on this list, Shop is definitely somewhere you are going to be immediately drawn to for their minimalistic vibe and trendy hipster vibes. They also happen to have some of the best coffee in Williamsburg making this a top Williamsburg cafe.
Shop (formally known as Sweatshop) is an Australian coffee shop with some very friendly baristas that put time and care into each coffee they make. With that being said, make sure you try the flat white as it happens to be one of the best in the city.
The space is small but they do have indoor and outdoor seating and if you get there early, it is a great spot to work or meet friends. They also have breakfast, lunch and pastry options should you get hungry while you work.
Open daily from 8 am to 4 pm
Address: 104 Roebling Street
Another coffee shop in Williamsburg that initially drew me in based on the aesthetics is Lion’s Milk. The space is small but mighty and features local artist’s work, delicious coffee and offers wine and tapas some nights of the week.
While the space might be small, every time I have been there seems to be more seating that other spots in Williamsburg making this not only a great spot for coffee in Williamsburg but also a great spot to get work done or meet up with friends. They also offer outdoor dining and are laptop friendly.
In addition to coffee and the tapas mentioned above, Lion’s Milk also offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, make sure you try a Turkish pastry or Turkish coffee while you are here!
Open during the week from 7:30 am – 4:30 pm and 8:30 am to 5 pm on the weekends.
Copper Mug Coffee
Address: 131 N 4th Street
You will immediately be drawn to Coffee Mug Coffee because of the backyard. It is large, especially for New York standards, and has ample seating for working or meeting friends for some of the best coffee in Williamsburg.
