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.

Great service, good coffee. Also the OJ's were very good. My son (12) loved the root beer. Carrot cheesecake was nothing special. Pear tart was very good. Nice place to hang out and chat with the locals.

Well presented, great looking food. And it tasted good too. The egg and salmon bake was delicious and Paris Brest for dessert was good too. Little heavy/chewy for the choux but that could have been humidity or the fact it was late afternoon (distinct around). I'd go back for the food. But lacklustre service. I understand how once you've been,... More

Went here for desert and found the coffee to be okay, desert mediocre and service- non- existent. While we did not have to wait long for anything, the waiter did not utter a single word to us the whole time. There is a large selection of deserts, however, what I got (peach panna cotta) wasn't very good and was served... More

When it comes to desserts and coffee, you will not find a better place in Williamsburg than Fabiane's. The desserts are heavenly and beautifully created and everything is delicious. However, the reasons it is not 4-5 stars 1) Wait staff: often have attitudes and are not altogether friendly. This is on several of the occasions I have been there. I... More
