Like any big city, the cafe scene in NYC is overly saturated. This isn’t a bad thing of course, on the contrary, it means you’ll always find a quaint spot in your neighborhood and chances are, you’ll never run out of new places to grab a cup of coffee.
However, the prospect of opening up a new coffee shop can sometimes be quite daunting to the owner. The design, space, size, location and more are fundamental steps in assuring the success of the business. A concept that’s increasingly popping up around the city is to incorporate another aspect into what defines a “classic cafe”. Examples being, an art gallery, laundromat and in the case of Domicile – “an immersive environment centered around design”.
What makes this Bed-Stuy cafe stand out in particular is hands down attributed to its minimalistic design, which features a Grecian-inspired blue and white color palette, lush greenery and accents of “objects” that are meticulously arranged around the space. These “objects” include the likes of hanging plants, flower vases, CBD oils, Parlor Coffee and more, all of which rotate frequently and are also available for purchase.
Supporting other local Brooklyn businesses, their menu includes espresso from Parlor Coffee, tea and matcha from Kettl and some yummy goodies from Colson Patisserie. Their drink menu has some of the most unique takes on iced coffees and lattes that you won’t find anywhere else… so head to 185 Howard Ave to try them out for yourself!
