The Cobble Hill Coffee Shop At 314 Court Street
When the wind is blowing and the snow is piled up on the sidewalk, the Cobble Hill Coffee Shop, (which everyone here knows is actually in Carroll Gardens, but never mind!) becomes the perfect neighborhood hangout for those seeking a bit of warmth and some comfort food. And that seems like everyone, regardless of age or hipness. Yesterday, as on most days, that meant a group of elderly ladies, a few mothers with young children, our local UPS delivery guys, as well as some super-cool young freelancers.
Contrary to many places on Court or Smith Streets, this eatery, once called The Donut House, does not put on airs. That's probably why it has survived so long as the local greasy spoon.
Besides, where else in Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill would you find "Filet Of Soul Almantine" on the menu?
