Waffle Crush Wednesday: Cobble Hill Coffee Shop
Don’t let the name confuse you. Cobble Hill Coffee Shop isn’t the fancy neighborhood stop you stop in for cold brew or an espresso shot. In fact, you might not even notice it when you are walking down Court Street. It’s just an unassuming, old-school diner in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. And by old-school, we mean old-school. The wait staff seems like they’ve worked there since Giuliani was mayor. They’re charming and friendly — not easy to find in New York. And the booths are overflowing with regulars.
The diner is open for breakfast, lunch, and diner with everything imaginable on the menu for all three meals. Gyro wraps, mozzarella sticks, ice cream sundaes, cheeseburgers, green juices, and hash browns flood the menu pages. The food is homey and delicious. It all tastes actually homemade and not something that was just defrosted.
We of course went for breakfast. Each breakfast meal comes with a complimentary fresh-squeezed orange juice. No need to flag down the waiter for a coffee refill. The wait staff makes sure you never have to see the bottom of your mug. We ordered a Classic Belgian Waffle with a side of strawberries. However, the options were endless. Waffles with blueberries. Waffles with bacon. Waffles with ice cream. Waffles with eggs, sausage, AND hash browns. Ours came with two giant containers of syrup and a mound of butter slices. It was simple, crispy and in our opinion, one of the best waffles in Brooklyn.
