Believe it or not, Bay Ridge has a good number of great coffee shops. Even though that neighborhood is kind of isolated from the rest of Brooklyn, thanks to the lousy R train, this area boasts plenty of good places to grab coffee and other snacks. The first I am going to review is Coffee Rx.
Formerly known as The Coffee Lab, Coffee Rx’s prime location is at 6903 3rd Avenue, right off the R Train’s Bay Ridge Avenue stop. There’s a good selection of basic coffees, from drip to lattes to cappuccino. However, you also have the option of having rose lattes – which is literally a latte with flecks of rose petals in it! It tastes amazing!
Then there are the other drinks including the popular Nutella Monster (a latte that speaks for itself) and eight teas to choose from. And yes, this place has matcha drinks as well.
And then come the sandwiches, waffles and other thing to chomp down on. I recommend their Nutella and Ricotta cheese waffles, as well as their strawberry and ricotta cheese waffles. I think there’s even Nutella and banana waffles. In addition, you have your variety of wraps and sandwiches to choose from.
The place is clean, has an outdoor space, and even has Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, there is no Wi-Fi outside. As for the bathroom, it is also clean and spacious. It also has a toilet and a urinal together in the same bathroom! Talk about being gender neutral!
Overall, I give Coffee Rx great reviews. If you want, you can try its other locations, such as its stand on 88th Street in Bay Ridge. You may also want to try its latest opening at 1504 86th Street in Bensonhurst. Clearly, Coffee Rx is expanding and more of Brooklyn should enjoy their great coffees!
