Greenpoint folks got lucky with this little café because not only does it serve coffee until 2 a.m., but the quaint and comfortable backyard lights up at night for some romantic wine sipping. That’s right, they also serve wine and beer, with selections like Sixpoint Bengali, Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold, a sparkling Vigneto Saetti Lambrusco, and an array of whites and reds. The owners, John Ortiz and Jaime Eldredge, who runs the popular Enid’s nearby, live in the neighborhood and found that this particular area it lacked a decent wine bar. “Jaime wanted to have a grown-up Enid’s,” said Ortiz. “We also wanted to open a low-key place good for wine and conversation.” The name Troost is a Dutch surname that means “comfort” and “solace”—fitting, given the space. The café also sells baked goods by Bakeri, charcuterie and cheese platters, sandwiches, and homemade granola.

The back garden and La Colombe coffee (served until 2 a.m.) make this Greenpoint café a real neighborhood treasure.

    I just came back to Wisconsin after a trip to Brooklyn to see my son. One of the high points of my visit was sharing a morning mocha with my son at Troost. I loved the atmosphere and only wish it had been warm enough to sit outside as the courtyard looked darling. The pastries (especially the doughnuts on the weekend!) were also great. We went to Troost on my first day in Brooklyn and I asked to return every morning. I really wish we had a cute place like this in my hometown because I would head there every morning for a great cup of coffee!
