While there may be more cafe/bar hybrids in Williamsburg than the rest of the city combined, few are more conveniently located than Sugarburg. Right on top of the L and G trains, this is a good spot to get coffee and a bite during the day, or a cocktail later on. It gets swamped during weekend brunch, but there are usually plenty of booths and tables available during the week.
