Troost Cafe in Greenpoint, Brooklyn is a wonderful little cabin steps from the Greenpoint Ave G train subway stop.
On the west side of the street, find yourself charmed with harmony and balance as you enter this dim-lit, creative den, oozing a quaint charm and mellow vibe for the locals of Greenpoint. Repurposed wood floors lead you along a row of 2 person tables accented with wood benches lining the wall towards the back.
A simple glance doesn’t do enough pleasure so don’t feel intimidated by the creatives engaged in their laptops while an array of indie rock from the Smiths to Feist streams over the airwaves. Walk straight up to the lean marble topped bar and speak with any of the friendly staff about the suggestions for your fill in coffee or an afternoon refresher.
International beers and wines adorn the walls behind the bar. Feel eclectic as you choose between a brioche or bagel, a mellow spanish wine or cold bottle of german weiss beer.
Their wonderful garden in the back of the space is great for a relaxing afternoon or a mellow evening. Enjoy the crunch under foot from the pebble lined yard while lights strung across the tree branches enhance the gentle atmosphere that has become so cherished in the neighborhood.
