Parlay is a coffee shop in Sunset Park with big windows, a bunch of tables, and a record player with a stack of vinyl behind the counter. Do they ever turn that record player on? We honestly aren’t sure. But there’s usually some good music playing here regardless. This is a very pleasant place to hang out and grab some breakfast or lunch. We especially like the chicken curry (that comes with a buttery roti canai on the side), and there are also plenty of things like eggs benedict, pancakes, and various sandwiches.
