One of my favorite new places to get coffee is Café Sutra, and not just because it’s close to home. Okay, it’s mostly because of that. But it’s still a pretty sweet place. The decorations and drink names revolve around Hinduism, and though the place is freakishly narrow, the decorations make the most out of the space and create a relaxing, inviting atmosphere. The coffee and tea drinks range from basic to decadent (I never thought I’d consider a tea drink to be decadent, but they figured out a way). Baked goods and prepackaged sandwiches round out the selection, and the pastries look mighty tasty, though I haven’t tried any yet. Everything I’ve had there has been top notch, and the service is always friendly without the snobbery some Park Slope baristas are known for. One thing I really liked was that they have a very nice selection of celebrity magazines, in addition to the usual newspapers and board games. Finally somebody realized that nothing goes better with a fine cappuccino than an in-depth examination of Britney Spears’ floppy bologna curtains. The patio was closed the times I’ve patronized the café, but I look forward to its opening eagerly, as patios rule. Café Sutra also hosts a trivia night on Thursdays, for those with a knack for regurgitating useless information. I am one of those people, so I may or may not be attending this trivia night sometime soon. However, I am also lazy. Anyway, the coffee is tasty, and you should go there.
