I'm looking for a good place to sit down that has good coffee and food near Flatbush and Bergen. Tia.

  1. Can't really speak to the food, but the two closest places you could sit would be Gorilla Coffee or Ozzies. Both are on 5th...Gorilla is pretty close to Bergen, Ozzies is a bit farther down, but it is definitely a more comfortable place to hang out for a while.

    If you're not looking for a coffee house, maybe try Le Gamin on Vanderbilt and Dean (or Pacific?). French mini-chain with good coffee and French food.

    1. Right off the corner of Bergen on Vanderbilt is a place called The Old Brooklyn Parlor. I haven't had the food, but I had a quite good latte there made with Gorilla coffee. They have a fairly extensive menu.

      1. you might try Maha's. (on 6th between Flatbush and Bergen) Friends of mine enjoy relaxing there for tea and a small meal, or a bit of newspaper reading. I dont know how their coffee is however.

        1. Heights Coffee is on Flatbush and Prospect (?) -- across Flatbush from the intersection with 7th Ave. Coffee and sandwiches/soups/salads.
