$$$$Perfect For:Drinking Good WineCoffee & A Light Bite

In some of our wildest dreams, everything is located in a Brooklyn brownstone. Restaurants. Grocery stores. Exterminators. For the most part, this is impossible—zoning laws, or something—except at Prima. The coffee shop/wine bar in Clinton Hill occupies the bottom floor of a brownstone on Greene Ave., and during the day people drink cappuccinos and eat pastries in the front window. In the evening, they drink wine, and there’s usually at least one second date huddled around a small table in the back. They close from 3-5pm, so you can’t stay here all day drinking coffee until it magically turns to wine. But they host frequent events (keep an eye on their Instagram), and they have a backyard where you can lounge with a bottle in the summer.
