Antipodean-style coffee comes to Brooklyn
Noteworthy for: They’re serious coffee geeks here with coffee flights available for the curious, though no one will judge you for keeping things simple.
Tipple of choice: It’s all about the flat white. If you haven’t had one, Toby’s is where to start.
It doesn’t get more Williamsburg than the atmosphere in Toby’s Estate, even if this is a Sydney import. Introducing the Antipodean style of coffee to the American public one hipster at a time, this café houses New York’s first pressure-controlling Strada machine as well as a 25-kilo roaster.
The space is light and airy with a wall of windows. The communal wooden tables are full of Macbook wielding freelancers and the bench outside is a sun-soaked local meeting point. They do food too, albeit a little pricey, but any homesick Aussies will appreciate the Vegemite on toast.
