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.
