Now famous for its appearance on HBO’s hit series Girls, Café Grumpy is (or used to be) the epitome of the Brooklyn coffee shop. Some are pissed that the show has put it into the unwanted mainstream, but we don’t think it’s lost its charm. Café Grumpy has locations both in Brooklyn and Manhattan; the baked goods are great and there’s a serious dedication to the roasting process.
