We went here for a quick snack and were impressed by the quality of the sandwiches on fresh baguettes. Coffee is nothing special. Service was disinterested, but maybe that was because it was NYE and they had somewhere else they'd rather be.

Great breakfast and lunch place. (I'm sure the same goes for dinner, we just haven't eaten dinner there...yet.) On our last lunch visit, my wife and I split the turkey sandwich with mango chutney and the chicken curry salad...both were excellent. The dessert case is loaded with some really good options. This is an "order at the counter; food brought... More

Nice little cafe in a nice little shopping area. Went to Brooklyn for a look around and this area was recommended to me. The cafe looked appealing from the outside. The coffee was good and the food was nice. I ordered the quiche which was nice but the salad was nicer! The salad dressing was delicious. The staff were nice... More

I was shopping in the area and swung by for a quick bite before I went back to Manhattan. There wont be any special trips to come by here again. It's cash only, so make sure you have some on you!! The woman at the register took my order and spit that out as soon as she saw me reach... More

This is one of my favorite spot where to go and grab some pastries for a home dinner with friends in NY. I also seated there times. The coffee is really good since they have Lavazza but the service isn't good the same. Try the pistachio cake or everything else thought,you'll go back there for some shopping for sure!!

We needed a cup of coffee and a beer (not both of course, one each) and a short rest from walking. Very bland sums it up. Try elsewhere in Williamsburg I suggest.

Nothing memorable about this coffee shop. It was crowded but most people look like they stumbled in because they didn't know where to go. I was too full to have anything other that dessert and a latte, but even that was mediocre.

Pastries were decadent, very sweet and rich. You order and pay at the counter. The wait staff brings your goodies and coffee to you table. Service is very good, cream for coffee came warm in an individual creamer, which adds a nice touch. You can also ask for refill.

I love eating salads here, the desserts are pretty awesome too. Fabian's is the only spot neighborhood who make a really good and big salad. My favorite is the spinach shitake or the Niçoise. This is my go-to place for meetings of for a healthy bit to eat.
