Caffeine Underground – our favourite, no frills Brooklyn coffee hangout with wonderful bagels

Located on Central Ave in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the Caffeine Underground gets our vote as the best coffee shop in Brooklyn, and the best bagels for miles.

It’s a down to earth affair, with unmatched chairs and tables scattered around, fast wi-fi and a laid back vibe that encourages you to stay for more coffee and snacks.

It’s super affordable too – as of March 2024, toasted cream cheese bagels were $3 with a regular coffee just $2.75.

There’s plenty of other tasty options available including grilled sandwiches, vegan burgers, cakes and smoothies.  View their full menu here.

There’s regular live music and events taking place, with a small performance area at the back of the cafe.

Here’s the affable Bryan Bielanski who says that he’s been touring the world since 2012.

The walls are covered with the work of local artists.
