Coffee lovers have quickly taken to the Red Horse Cafe, a pleasant spot that opened just a couple months ago in Park Slope. Beans come from Barrington, the artisanal Massachusetts roaster that also supplies the hound-endorsed Joe in Manhattan. “So far, they seem to be doing a pretty good job with them,” observes PAL, who ranks the newcomer ahead of established neighborhood favorite Cafe Regular, “where I’ve received three totally botched espresso drinks in the past few months.”
The Red Horse also sells premade sandwiches, as well as sweets from Baked in Red Hook. It has comfortable leather couches, tables for laptop users, and free wi-fi. “A great place to hang out,” says Peter Cuce.
