This Chill Coffee House in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Reminds Us of Central Perk from Friends
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
First, kick off the evening with the visually stimulating Glady's Jerk Center. A casual, counter-service Caribbean joint with wood-fired fare (we’re big fans of the Curry Goat and Seitan) and an overall upbeat personality. With tropical hues, stemming from its multicolored gradient entrance to the yellow geometric partitions, the energy here buzzes, which is perfect if you’re looking to break away from the more traditionally conservative date night M.O.
Next, slow that energy down at PLG Coffee House and Tavern. With a charmingly lackadaisical vibe, a laid-back staff, and an overall boho-chic atmosphere taking inspiration from Central Perk on Friends (all the way down to the exposed brick walls, vibrant pops of color in nearly every piece of furniture, and locally sourced wall art). Whether you want to end the night with an upper (aka a double shot of espresso) or downer (aka anything off their beer tap), you’ve got options.
