Grab Your Coffee & Run: Best In & Out Coffee Shops in Greenpoint

espresso greenpointDuring the holidays, time is on fast forward and we need our caffeine fix without a lot of waiting around. Here are some of the best coffee shops in Greenpoint for when we are on the go. That being said, I don’t care what kind of a rush you are in, never order you espresso in a to-go paper cup (the blasphemy!) and don’t forget to tip your barista.

Variety (145 Driggs Ave)

Excellent brew and my favorite cappuccino in the hood, the space was designed just for a coffee line. These efficient baristas magically fill orders so the wait is never long.

• Champion (1108 Manhattan Ave)

If you live this far up Manhattan, you will need a warm coffee to help you speed walk to the train. Champion has some of the best espressos in Greenpoint and some of the most on point baristas who will get you on your way without a lot of fuss.

Cup on Norman (79 Norman Ave)

Located steps from the G on Norman Ave, Cup, which has the best espresso in Greenpoint also has some of the quickest and friendliest service so you’ll be out the door in minutes.

Cookie Road (94 Franklin St)

Another café just large enough to grab your coffee order and a slice of frittata or a cheddar biscuit.

Five Leaves (18 Bedford Ave)

You don’t even have to waste time going inside, Five Leaves’ coffee window serves strong brews right out of their window on Bedford Ave.

Upright (860 Manhattan Ave)

If you catch the G at Greenpoint, check out Upright, rated the second best espresso in Greenpoint on our tour, they also have fun latte flavors and offer almond milk for anti-soy vegans.
