Was looking for a good espresso and somebody told me to go there. Expensive and espresso really far away to be considered acceptable by an Italian.

This is quite possibly the best all-around coffee shop in the city, including the other Gimme! locations. Excellent drip, excellent espresso-based drinks, and friendly, no-attitude service from excellent baristas. Alex and Erica are particularly nice.

The choices are clever, and the hot coffee is good. I ordered the iced coffee and it tasted like iced water..no flavor and I didnt get the experience everyone was talkig about. The hot coffee however was good, but I cant say it was "the best" where I would frequent it often.

Really good clever coffee and really good cold brew. This is a coffee shop with pastries. Very good single origin coffee and coffee making supplies. I will go back next time I am in Brooklyn.

The decaf coffee was an Americano which turned out great because the barista customized mine to be strong at my request. The pastries were super fresh going beyond standard issue selections and were much better quality than the usual fare. The pumpkin muffin was light and sprinkled with real pumpkin seeds. The almond breakfast roll was so moist and flaky.... More

Another "best of" that happens to be right down the street. Love them, but the only drawback is you smell like coffee all day if you step foot inside. Get your friend to go in for you :)
