Run by co-owners Jane and Laura, both of whom are Korean American, Hamlet Coffee Company in Prospect Lefferts Gardens opened in February 2020 and was named so with the intention of creating a small village and neighborhood community. Based on the line to get into the coffee shop when we last visited, Jane and Laura have definitely created something special here. They’re carefully following social distancing policies and allowing one person in at a time, but even with the extra wait time, this is still one of our favorite coffee shops to order a delicious cup of seasonal Nelson Chavez drip coffee from before finding a bench in Prospect Park just two avenues away. Take-out orders are available Monday to Friday from 7-4pm and Saturday to Sunday from 7:30-3pm.
