When Acre opened in the spring of 2020, it became an instant bright spot for the neighborhood. This Japanese coffee shop and cafe serves perfect bento lunch boxes (with pork katsu or chicken karaage, purple rice, fermented vegetables, and salad) - and their egg sandwich on a brioche bun is an ideal thing to sink your teeth into when you’re ravenous at noon on a Wednesday. It’s an essential Greenpoint lunch spot, especially now that both their parklet and back garden are open for sunny seating. The dining room is also a great place to work during the day.
