Windsor Terrace is sadly lacking in excellent third-wave coffee, but Daytime is starting to fill that gap. If you’re into locally sourced everything, you’ll love this shop, which doesn’t have seating but is extremely close to Prospect Park. They work with a Red Hook-based roaster to source their coffee and make a particularly good cold brew as well as a pretty pleasant decaf option too. They have a well-curated grab-and-go selection with everything from wine to half-pints of salad and jam. For breakfast, sandwiches are the way to go here, as the pastries can be hit or miss. The smoked turkey and bacon with pepper jam, cheddar, and arugula might sound basic, but it isn’t, largely thanks to the sweet and smokey combination of turkey and jam that’s vaguely reminiscent of Thanksgiving at a campground. They also make picnic boxes that you can pre-order for an easy lunch in the park.
