Coffee shop with high quality beans (Stumptown), good pastries (Dough doughnuts and macarons) and wifi. It's pretty cozy though, so it's probably a better place to sit and chat or read for a bit rather than a place to park all day to work on your laptop.
Bay Ridge is the lovely little South Brooklyn hood just across the water from Staten Island. Home to a large variety of immigrant communities, Bay Ridge has long been a dynamic and diverse neighborhood with a bounty of restaurants that reflect the mix of ethnicities. Immerse yourself in the monarch butterfly sanctuary at the Narrows Botanical Garden or go for a bike ride along the gorgeous waterfront Belt Parkway Promenade.
