Le Paris Dakar
Run by a husband-wife duo, Le Paris Dakar has a couple of locations in Bed-Stuy in addition to this newer one in Greenpoint. At this French/Senegalese cafe, you can get coffee, smoothies, and Senegal’s national drink, bissap, in addition to some breakfast and lunch foods. They have a huge selection of crepes stuffed with everything from smoked salmon to peanut butter and jelly, and you can choose from a few simple sandwiches and salads as well. The counter-service space is tiny, and there isn’t much seating inside, but if the weather’s nice, you can grab a little round table on the sidewalk patio.
