Sweatshop is a small coffee shop in Williamsburg that also seems to be some sort of branding/design headquarters. It’s Australian, so it makes sense. But you don’t have to be into design stuff to like this place. Just stop by in the morning and get some avocado toast. They make a good version. Alternately, bring your laptop and hang out with a coffee. It’s a nice little space, and you’ll see a bunch of young Williamsburg-types.
