A new alternative to the non-existence of Starbucks in the region of Midwood is found on Avenue J, just about under the Train bridge.
The decor is quite inviting. The coffee was good.

I forgot the name of it. It is quite easily located. Just exit the train, look for the 7/11 and turn your head left of the 7/11 and you will see it.
Large windows of glass allow all viewing from the street to witness, while out in the cold winter air, the inviting interior, filled with warmed air, happy customers, and empty clean cups, awaiting a coffee order.
Long sits and coffee now have an alternative to the ubiquitous and trite Starbucks.
The audio is played from Polk speakers, indicating a higher degree of taste when they are considering things that have a taste gradation...including coffee.
If you are into sugar, they have sugar items. They have meal items as well.
I venture to such places for coffee only, so I cannot comment on the two aforementioned.
Very nice bright place to take your coffee and do reading, or talk.
