AP Café

August 17, 2014


Look at this place! All white and minimalistic. Right down my alley! AP Café is located i Bushwick, Brooklyn and it has got to be one of the most beautiful cafés in NYC. The wooden table tops, Eames chairs, concrete floors and high ceilings make for a great atmosphere and you’ll even find two waterfalls both indoor and outdoor. Waterfalls! My first thought when visiting this place on our second day here was that it didn’t feel like I was in the very hip but also kind of deserted Brooklyn-area of Bushwick, but in a cool part of Downtown Manhattan. I guess that observation might be a touristy one to make. But i any case AP Café makes Bushwick worth a visit, even if you are the kind of visitor that only make it halfway over the Brooklyn Bridge. And if you are, you should seriously consider walking all the way, ’cause Brooklyn rocks!    

AP Café serves breakfast and lunch (they close at 7.30 pm so I guess a light early dinner is doable too) and a few examples from the menu are as follows; Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Croissant Sandwich (chicken apple sausage, scrambled egg, spinach and cheddar, it was great!), Kale Salad and Yoghurt Parfait. Plus, of course, freshly squeezed juices, smoothies and the best doughnuts from Dough. A perfect way to begin a day of exploring Bushwick and beyond!

    Nana, I really love your site. You take such beautiful photos and it is like you always find the most amazing places. Wish I was going soon.

      Thank you, that is very kind of you! I do a lot of research whenever I go somewhere – life is too short to eat bad food at ugly restaurants and cafés! ;-)

    Your blog is a wonderful discovery. You’re so inspiring. May I ask what camera and lenses do you usually use ?

      Thanks, Meggan! That is very sweet of you to say, I’m happy to inspire! I’m a little embarrassed to say that I always use my iPhone 5s! I have a Canon that I really should get started with soon.. But my iPhone is always around, it’s so handy ;-) I only shoot in good light and edit with Afterlight (normally just turn up the brightness + adjust a little contrast and saturation) if that helps you. Happy that you’re following along!

    Love your blog.
