CARROLL GARDENS — A new cafe and "roastery" is bringing both specialty coffee and cocktails, as well as a hearty all-day food menu, to Carroll Gardens next month.
East One Coffee Roasters, owned by Tom Cummings and Morten Tjelum, will open April 6 at 384 Court St., according to a press release.
Caffeine fiends can watch their beans roasting on site and buy bags to brew at home. At the cafe, the coffee is brewed with a special “Slayer Steam” machine, which the cafe says creates the “perfect” steamed milk and is the first of its kind in the United States.
The cafe will serve a variety of coffee from around the world, including beans from both local and international distributors like the Gowanus-based Crop to Cup, according to the coffee shop.
The kitchen, run by chef Will Ono, will serve breakfast from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., with options like malted pancakes with berry compote, mascarpone, ginger and maple syrup; and the English breakfast-style “Brooklyn Fry-Up” which includes eggs, sausage, bacon, beans and roasted tomato.
Lunch and dinner service will start at 11:30 a.m., with items like cheese and charcuterie plates; grilled cheese with Vermont raclette and onion jam; pozole verde with pork bone broth, hominy avocado and poblano chile; and a Fleisher’s cheeseburger with American cheese, “special sauce” and pickles.
Sides include crispy yucca fries with aioli, cilantro and cherry bomb peppers; and roasted beets with whipped feta and fresh herbs.
Snacks and pastries will be available throughout the day, and the cafe will serve a variety of craft wine, beer and cocktails in the evening.
The cafe will be separated into a 25-seat coffee bar, a retail shop where customers can buy beans straight from the "roastery," and a 75-seat eatery for sit-down meals, according to the release.
The cafe — which takes over the former Casa Rosa spot — will have an industrial Scandinavian design, with floor-to-ceiling windows, wood accents and black countertops made from recycled paper.
East One Coffee Roasters will be open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
