This is a spot in Bed-Stuy with a bunch of wooden tables, and a nice leather couch in the back. There’s also a shelf area where you can buy books as well as coffee, and every purchase helps fund events like open mics and yoga classes. If you meet up with someone for coffee here, try not to say outright that you’re a caring, thoughtful person - just show up to Playground Coffee Shop and it’ll be implied.
