Shann introduced me to Konditori in Brooklyn’s Park Slope a few months ago.
At the time, this Swedish coffee shop had no name, but now they have a name, and even a logo! High ceilings and fans, free wifi, housemade pastries and a menu of coffee and tea. $3.25 for iced tea – a Harney & Sons tea bag, water and ice, is somewhat steep, but I just think of it as paying for the wifi. There’s a big communal table and smaller two-tops throughout the cafe, quiet and conducive to a day of work. They have a sister location on the Lower East Side, but the Park Slope location is more open, relaxing. A 30-minute train ride from my apartment to Park Slope and totally worth the time.
Hope everyone is staying cool today. 99F today and 105F tomorrow. Kat in Hawai’i- please send some of those breezy Honolulu tradewinds over this way!
