Lips Cafe is my go-to neighborhood coffee shop for an oat milk latte. Its spacious cafe and art space - operated by a Vincy mother-son duo - is a great place to meet a friend for Caribbean staples like their tasty bake & saltfish with avocado. Located on one of the hippest blocks in Flatbush, Lips also hosts art exhibitions and pop-up shops, and participates in community efforts like Little Caribbean’s COVID-19 initiative to feed frontline health heroes at local hospitals.
