Northern PLG got its groove back this weekend when Blue Roost finally opened its doors to a desperate croissant and coffee public.
The reviews will best be written by Yelp.com regulars, but from this here Bustello-quaffing caffeine addict, the coffee seems just fine, the croissant fluffy, and the other baked goods looked fresh. By mid-week, they'll be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here's to a great run, Blue Roost. By now it should be clear to all that the demand for a joint like yours is frothy indeed.
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
