ARTisanal Brews via Left Hand Coffee
Fueled by caffeine, and dedicated to the perfect iPhone pic of latte art atop a wooden table next to a succulent and a copy of Kinfolk magazine, the coffee snob is a unique breed of foodie. Although one wouldn’t necessarily associate Montauk with this obsession, the newly opened Left Hand Coffee (at 83 S Elmwood Ave.) is making addicts out of amateurs.
Their extensive menu of standbys (lattes, cappuccinos) and soon to be favorites (flat whites, matcha lattes) aims to please. Need a nibble? A selection of fresh pastries as well as chocolate from Brooklyn’s Fine & Raw will satisfy your sweet tooth. Herbal refreshments more your thing? Their full selection of Bellocq teas won’t disappoint.
To further cement their legitimacy they’ve got NYC Ultimate Barista winner “Danny Latte” behind the counter showing off his latte art skills. He recently put together a video compilation (shot via Google Glass). Check it out for yourself:
