Boycott The Archive – Archive's coffee is terrible and 90% of their employees are pretentious (the girls are usually nice though). If you're not a rich kid pretending to be ironic and poor (basically a hipster), this isn't the coffee shop for you. It's sad that such a great location and environment is ruined by a few employees. If you're in the area and just want coffee, get some at the Organic Food Market next door; their coffee is dramatically better.
I've given The Archive multiple tries, but I've decided to boycott them and never go back.
And how hard is it to make decent tasting coffee? Seriously, try cleaning your equipment, I think that's the reason for the bitter taste that no amount of sugar can cover up.
Out of nowhere – I had been going to visit friends in the Bushwick area for three years and to my surprise recently I found this little oasis in the sea of warehouses. This place is amazing...movies, caffeine, magazines, sandwiches. It's another reason for those artists who are getting more square footage than any of us manhattanites to stay put.
Bushwick's burgeoning film community satisfies caffeine and Coppola cravings at this cafe-cum-DVD rental shop. – In Short
The Archive's earthen-toned walls, mod, minimalist furniture, exposed brick and industrial lighting set a comfortable mis-en-scene for relaxing with a specialty coffee and a home-baked pastry. Film and video art projections, from the extensive DVD rental collection, flicker on the centralized, wall-mounted screen as nearby customers surf the internet on wireless laptops or browse through the well-organized shelves stocked with everything from the Czech New Waver "Daisies" to "Lord of the Rings."
