$$$$Perfect For:Coffee & A Light BiteSee And Be Seen

At Dae, people with large Instagram followings take pictures of their milk bread french toast with checkerboard butter. This cafe for very cool people in Carroll Gardens has mugwort lattes, a resident dog, and a curated collection of houseware for sale, so that you can follow your latte with a wine glass purchase that you don’t need but really love. There’s a no-laptop policy, but go ahead and spend a morning in the bright corner space writing in the journal you haven’t touched in months, or catching up with a friend who likes nice things. They do Korean-inspired cocktails and small plates at night, but there are no reservations, and it gets busy. If you're willing to wait, spend the time people-watching before your maesil spritz and scallop crudo.
