Crossroads Cafe

Just a few blocks from Prospect Park, this small, windowed cafe offers neighborhood dwellers a place to read or type while they caffeinate. “We’re wired up!” says owner Suzanne Meehan about the cafe’s free wireless Internet service. The colorful, suede-covered seats and dark wooden tables also offer a cozy environment for a snack or light lunch; many varieties of sweet and savory pastries, salads, sandwiches and “high-end” juices are served daily. The white bean soup with spinach is popular with customers, says manager Yasmin Gur; while the carrot cake, banana bread and chocolate chip cookies are “famous.” The chicken curry sandwich is a big favorite, says Gur, as are panini like the “California” (avocado, cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato). Wednesday through Friday, the cafe features “Toddler Sing”: a live music and puppet show starting at 10:30 am; every Tuesday evening, there’s live jazz; and on Sundays, folk music. Crossroads Cafe also has a takeout window serving breakfast to on-the-go commuters. Open daily.
