We've officially landed in Brooklyn. And, of course, the first thing we did was scope out the best spots for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between.


Vineapple is a neighbourhood livingroom. The big difference here is that they have a better coffee (and wine!) selection than most of your friends. Cozy up on the couch or grab a coffee to go. Major plus: they carry Stumptown. Also, it's a stone's throw from our two locations at 44 Court Street.

Iris Cafe Store #9

Iris originally opened to serve breakfast, but quickly began serving lunch, dinner, and drinks. We stopped in for a hearty (and very symmetrical) yogurt parfait. Service is snappy, so you can stay awhile before meeting the team. If you don't have time for breakfast in the morning, no worries. They serve it until 4:30pm. The best.


Let's face it: at lunch you're going to want some pizza. Stroll on over to Dellaroccos for some, straight out of the brick oven. The building has large windows with tons of light—it's the perfect spot for some NYC 'za. (Don't judge this place by the website.)

Ample Hills

Right around 3 o'clock is time for a little sugar. Ample Hills makes some of the best ice cream New York City has to offer. Grab a cone and walk down the pier to check out the amazing views of Lower Manhattan. (Just don't forget to head back to work.)


After work, it's drink timeColonie's got your back. It's a great place for a nice cocktail and a few oysters. The swanky vibe and nice tune selection makes it the perfect place to unwind after a day of work (or eating).
