I believe there's two of these in NYC, but I hit the one in Manhattan. It's a small shop, but they make good coffee. I got a mocha which was pretty good, but a little bland for my taste, but it was quality coffee, and they did a fancy pour on it making it look nice. I would still recommend this place. Maybe it was the drink I ordered. My friend loved her latte.
One of the best coffee places where you can taste the real coffee! Great espressos and cappuccinos~ very nice cafe atmosphere is a plus!
One of the better shops in East – They have good espresso to work with (Leftist Blend), and more importantly, they know what to do with it. Thought they might slip a bit when Chris left for Atlanta, but Mike has held it together and they're still the kings (and queens) of Williamsburg for quality espressos and cappuccinos. Only gripe is we've found them closed at times around the holidays with no notice. Varietals selection also impressive and very good (had El Bergel CoE last trip).
Amazing! – This is the best coffee ever. Don't expect to hang out here all afternoon, as there are only three booths. Also, if they're available, get an almond croissant. It's absolutely perfect with an americano.
Simply Amazing – Why is so much better here? I wish all the coffee shops in the neighborhood made lattes this good. My morning train commute would be so much more pleasant if my fellow travelers enjoyed their morning coffee half as much. Plus they have pastries from Balthazar. What a great way to start the day...
Gimme! Coffee is on to something! – After trying the Leftist espresso I am unable to drink coffee anywhere else in the city. They say that you can get anything in NY, well, this was a close one - Gimme! rocks!
Decent, but not great. – When I went, expecting the best coffee in the world, I was disappointed to find an ok but bland cup of joe served by surly hipper than thou type. The space is nice and the prices are moderate, but there are much better cups of coffee to be had in this city. Don't make a trip if it is out of your way.
Best coffee in the world!!!! – Gimme is by far the best coffee I have ever had. I used to live in Ithaca and after tasting their coffee you literally can't have anything else and be satisfied. They roast their own beans in Ithaca and they will send it to yo anywhere. My father came to visit me at school and tried their mesa de los santos and immediately became a gimme junkie. He now orders online and gets about ten lbs. at a time. So for me to have a gimme cafe in New York is so nice, nothing can possibly compare, so if you cant make it out to williamsburg then just order it online and you will not regret it. Just be prepared to not accept anything less.
Artisanal roasting guides the flavor of this Williamsburg coffee bar. – In Short
An extension of a young coffee chain from Ithaca, NY, this relaxed hangout, decorated with black booths, sleek swivel chairs and colorful artwork, brings the craftsmanship of master roaster John Gant to Brooklyn. All espresso shots are triple ristretto, and daily blends such as Deep Disco and Platinum Blonde come with whimsical descriptions to match--think "Magical Deep Cherry" and "Centennial Harley Leather." The drip is also nothing to laugh at, with a wide variety of beans roasted at Gimme Coffee's upstate facility for maximum freshness.
