BROOKLYN: A very American coffee shop

Currently living in the USAHe seems as important as interesting to create a movement of France/USA cultural exchanges. In this article, I present to you a new coffee which only Americans have the secret, in the Brooklyn.




in Washington DC,appearances are very deceptive. So you can very well meet someone of the caliber of a Bill Gates , just wearing a short and flip-flops, at any time of the year (I exaggerate only!). Cannot find anything derogatory in my words, it is simply a way of life, somewhere much simpler than in France.

For cafes, restaurants, stores, it's pretty much the same principle: the storefronts are simple.  (sometimes even unattractive!) , but always fully in line with the shelter building. 

And daring to walk out the door...

The MP Shift has thought of everything. First, wood for heat, because his mind very Bistro Viennese reminds us Régina THONET. Then, everything is tweaked with the appearance here and there of details treated for the very current effect: golden lights, geometric wallpaper and pure lines characteristics of the Japanese architects way to build.

The space-planning is also Typically in the American spirit "Long live freedom"We give all the cards to the customer so that he feels that it is he who decides, and he has the choice. All the base configurations are available to people, allowing them to:


  • take their breakfast alone at the bar counter,
  • stay the entire afternoon in Group of 5 or 10.
  • or spend just an hour to 2, to discuss on the benches...

What arguments do we come back to a place? In this place, the design quality prevail and take away the food with it. Nothing in common with Starbucks where the muffins are roughly spread out behind a display case where can't even see them. This time it is the work of art, custom made. Each piece of food is carefully prepared by hand and adjusted, like a ritual, who would bend to the design of the place, clean and without burrs. This is probably a lot due to the talent of the photographer, but even pastries seem to have been designed / included with the concept! 

This coffee breathes freshness and sweetness, feel like there whispering (even if it seems difficult in the United States, this practice is not integrated in the manners!) and y cocoon. Thus there is also a kind of campus and bohemian spirits as only URBAN OUTFITTERSWe go back, time for a coffee, in the atmosphere of our studies, where a place like this would have attracted us without hesitation.

Finally, this brightness,which is absolutely not usual in cafes across the Atlantic (most play on the atmosphere "coffee" using brown, black, beige... – > See at my post In order not to fall into an "over corporate" approach! ), greatly made the difference. Indeed the majority use of white, being the worthy representative of the nine, increased perspectives. And winter approaching, we're going to increasingly in search of light and this kind of spaces to spend long hours...

As you can see, an American coffee is distinguished not only by a clear and attractive offer (design + food), but also a family spirit that makes that everyone can easily take his ease and its freedoms. GO USA!
