This grocery store and café, which specializes in artisanal, local goods, was one of the first signs that Williamsburg was cleaning up its act and becoming more like Soho and less of a hipster hangout. Selling gourmet treats, house-cured meats, some pretty spectacular sandwiches, pastries, and of course, Intelligentsia coffee, this is a local favorite and a good stop for lunch on the go in the neighborhood. In the store, you’ll find cheese bags, really nice olive oils, cordials and syrups, and salt water taffy.
