Coffee is one of the most important things man derives from beans, surpassed only by rainbows, beanbag chairs, and opportunities to antagonize giants in their sky homes. Trade your family's last cow for today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a 10-punch card valid for any small or medium drink or any pastry at Sit & Wonder (up to a $32.50 value), located in Brooklyn's Prospect Heights.
Java quaffers head to Sit & Wonder for its delicious Stumptown Coffee blends, its fresh, flaky pastries, and its hip, professional-friendly vibe. Sit & Wonder’s menu is rich with aromatic favorites, such as chai lattes and espressos, which are brewed in a La Marzocco machine with organic and fairly traded coffees. Tea-totallers can sip on such eclectic brews as english breakfast or peppermint alfalfa. Almond croissants and chocolate-banana muffins give imbibers something to nibble on while they debate the merits of giving governing power to the person with the most Supreme Court action figures.
Bare brick surrounds patrons in the relaxed, home-away-from-home space as bean buffs can take up stools at the window or plop down on the comfy couch. Sit & Wonder also is outfitted with more than 60 electrical outlets on its walls, providing laptop-wielding poets with productivity juice to work on their novel or set up their new online business that sells T-shirts and Saturn V rockets.
- Very comfortable, great coffee. I like that they have various seating options, with tables and couches. It's warm, they play good music and it's very spacious. – Ali S., Yelp, 01/02/2010
- I have to say that a little bit of the allure is lost on me, since I (gasp) don’t drink coffee, but it’s a perfect coffee shop for getting out of the house and doing work. – Cozy Josie's Brooklyn Beat
