Cafe Martin - My Favorite Brooklyn Coffee Shop

If you come to Brooklyn, please find your way to tiny Cafe Martin in Park Slope. Go around 9am on the weekend. Read The New York Times. Say hi to Martin - he's an Irishman with a wonderfully endearing sneer. Get the best cappuccino of your life and maybe tack on a buttery croissant or a crumbly muffin. I love this place and it's one of my first stops whenever I get home from a trip. This isn't a place where you'll whip out your laptop and get some work done. But it is the perfect place to slow down.
