If you just want a standard coffee shop in Williamsburg rather than a cafe/bar hybrid where the guy next to you pitches “the next big thing on HSN” after every IPA, then check out And / Or. It’s right at the entrance to the Lorimer L stop, and it has a good number of two-person tables, a counter in the window, and a communal table in the back in case you have a big group.
