Baba Cool Cafe is a quaint wifi equipped cafe perfect for a bite to eat and to get some work done. They’re known for their three rocking chairs out front that on a nice day is the best part of the experience. I also found a hidden outlet outside to charge my laptop. Inside you’ll find an intimate experience with friendly attentive staff. They also have little goodies that you can purchase like a Baba Cool bag that has a picture of their three rocking chairs. How cute is that?
What is so impressive about this adorable cafe is that they make everything fresh to order. That means there is a little bit of a wait but it’s well worth it. Baba Cool provides gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and dairy free products. They also make their own hot sauce and it’s bottled up at every table for you to dab on your sandwich or specialty bowl to give it a little kick. I ordered a fresh lemonade, the avocado toast and the arugula salad because I was on a hot summer day I wanted a meal that was light and refreshing. Well I was completely satisfied. Their fresh lemonade was so, well refreshing! This was my first time trying avocado toast which is surprising because of my guacamole obsession you’d think I would have tried all things avocado but I haven’t. I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of avocado and slightly spicy seasoning they added on top. My salad included corn, tomatoes and yes more avocado. I guess I was on a true health kick, and didn’t even realize it.
Baba Cool Cafe is a great neighborhood go to cafe. When you’re running to work to catch the train and need coffee, or if you want to get out of your apartment and get some fresh air while still getting work done or if like me you want a nice refreshing meal in a peaceful environment, Baba Cool is the place to go. I’m planning to return for breakfast and try their popular breakfast bowl and coffee. If you’re in the Fort Greene neighborhood visit Baba Cool and tell them Simplypamarie told you about it!
