South Slope Local

355 7th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215, USA

Editor's Review

Uptown Rosters has a roasting facility (but no longer a café) in East Harlem, and this light-filled South Slope café is their only retail outlet. The welcoming space has plenty of seating for laptops or socializing, plus a small back room that is a great spot for an impromptu sit down, and it can also be reserved for scheduled meetings or small conferences. They serve a full selection of espresso drinks and drip coffee, as well as excellent nice specialty lattes, including Chai, Matcha, and Turmeric.

For food options, there is a solid pastry selection from Balthazar and a couple of other local bakers, as well as bagels from Park Slope mainstay La Bagel Delight. They also offer a few homemade sandwiches, nothing fancy, but they make a mean grilled cheese, as well as a couple of other options. The cold case is well stocked with juices, natural sodas, hard-boiled eggs and several yogurt options. Uptown has more of a neighborhood café feel to it than anything else, and we mean that in the best possible way. The staff is friendly and laid-back, the drinks are delicious but unfussy, and the room is large and comfortable, filled with a cross-section of neighborhood locals of all ages and backgrounds.
