Butler Bakeshop Dumbo
There are lots of overpriced, overrated spots in Dumbo, but Butler isn’t one of them. This all-day cafe is our go-to for a leisurely weekday breakfast, a lunch with a laptop, or pastries and iced coffee before a walk along the waterfront. The wifi is fast, there are ample outlets, and the staff won’t give you side-eye if you hang out and take Zoom meetings for a few hours. This is also a great low-key brunch spot if you don’t want to have to put on a whole outfit or make a reservation on a weekend morning.
