Two coffee bars are opening in Dumbo on the corner of Jay and John Street. The Dumbo businesses and entrepreneurs will appreciate the additional coffee options. The Brooklyn Roasting Company Cafe will be opening within two weeks at 25 Jay Street. The coffee bar features a “French Roast-toned blackened and waxed steel countertop and hand-milled teak bar face”. The bar has a 360 degree view of the roasters and will serve snacks, sandwiches, and light lunch. Brooklyn Roasting Co (“BRC”) is also launching three mini-cafes aboard the new NY Waterways Ferries. NY Waterways is offering free travel for its first two weeks of operation and BRC is serving commuters free coffee during the same period.
Also opening later is an espresso bar in the former Priviledged clothing boutique space at 14 Jay Street (which is part of the 20 Jay Street building shown below). We don’t have the name yet, but will report back once we have details.
We’ve taste tested the coffee in Dumbo, and looking forward to some more options for espressos in Dumbo.
