Like many obsessed New Yorkers coffee is my drug of choice. I need it in the morning to help get the cobwebs out of my head. I need another cup to deal with the subway ride to the office. I need MOAR coffee to get me through the work day. Then sometimes on the weekends I put aside my coffee addiction to enjoy a spot of tea.

For us it’s a pretty easy trek as we jump on the #4,5, or 6 subway to the L train to Bedford Ave. It leads right into the heart of “Billyburg” as the L train is known as the “Hipster Express” to me and many others. There are so many terrific little places to shop as the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well here, along with many delectable spots to eat and drink!
