Specialty neighborhood
Foster Sundry
215 Knickerbocker Ave., Bushwick
Everything in this next-level grocery is fresh, local, and exquisite. The whole-animal butcher counter stocks a variety of meats, as well as incredible kale-chicken and other veggie-blended sausages (the gracious men and women behind the counter are quick to oblige your spatchcocking needs). The cheeses are stupendous, ranging from creamy Humboldt Fog to intense Von Trapp Oma, beautifully merchandised within a profusion of za’atar, fresh-milled local flour, handmade pastas, beautiful produce, nuts, small-batch chocolates, and some especially delicious potato chips. There’s a coffee bar and a full food menu that makes one of the most excellent brunches in the area. The Ham ‘n Honey Biscuit gives us chills: griddled ham, melty cheddar, and lush buttermilk bread made on premises.

Little Skips
941 Willoughby Ave., Bushwick
At this point, Brooklyn can probably give Seattle a run for its money when it comes to number of coffee shops per capita, and Little Skips is easily one of the best. It's especially great for those who like semi-loud background music since it's an undeniable part of the hipster package. Thai iced tea—an equally potent alternative to a latte—is on the menu in addition to all the usual suspects if you’re feeling adventurous. Fair warning: outlets are a limited commodity here so come fully charged just in case. The second outpost is on Myrtle Avenue.
