If you could take just one photo: The general store's shelves
Five minutes away from the lively scene on Bedford Street, Marlow and Sons in South Williamsburg features some of the best roasters in the nation—notably, Four Barrel Coffee, Terroir, Handsome Roasters, and George Howell. The leading barista behind the bar is easily remembered because he remembers you, even after just one visit, and provides top-notch service. What people could perceive as cramped could also be viewed as cozy, as you pull up a stool in the cafe-turned-general store in front of shelves of handmade leather bags, high-quality denim jeans, or whatever strikes Marlow and Sons' fancy. The general store setup encourages you to browse their offerings. Beyond clothing, they have local artisan foods such as chocolate, and most importantly, bags of their selected coffee to take home. Sip on one of the carefully chosen espressos as you browse the items, or pair it with a homemade biscuit with cream and blood-orange marmalade.March 28, 2012 Like Add a Comment
