Boneshakers cafe, Brooklyn
'Bikes, food and coffee'
(Photos/words © urban75, Dec 2008)
After the death-by-yuppie demise of our favourite Williamsburg cafe, the Read Cafe on Bedford, we'd been looking for a good hang out cafe in Brooklyn.
We still like the Atlas cafe Havemeyer St, but when it comes to tasty veggie/vegan food, Boneshakers has become our number one neighbourhood cafe.
The menu has a great choice of sandwiches named after famous cyclists and as keen cyclists, we liked all the bike references.
It may be a far way off the beaten track, but the the friendly staff and pleasant laid back atmosphere makes for a rewarding visit - and there's free wi-fi too.
The range of food on offer was interesting and tasty. Here's a selection from their bike-themed menu:
Merckx Werkx tofurky, sham, olive tapenade, chipotle mayo, lettuce, tomato, on a ciabatta hero
Da' Crank sham & cheddar, lettuce, tomato, on rosemary foccacia
Peleton pesto, provolone, lettuce, tomato, sprouts, on a kaiser roll
10 Speed veggie patty cheese, lettuce, tomato, on a kaiser roll
Hill Bomber veggie patty, avocado, lettuce, tomato, on a kaiser roll
Training Wheels side salad with mixed greens, sprouts, carrot, tomato, red onion, with balsamic vinegrette
