The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

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.

Hello Blue Roost

Northern PLG got its groove back this weekend when Blue Roost finally opened its doors to a desperate croissant and coffee public.
Little has changed to the decor that would scare away old K-Dog veterans, with a homey feel best exemplified by the cute table seating arrangement and "put a bird on it" artwork. Here, a happy Sterling Street family drinks in the breakfast ambiance:

The reviews will best be written by 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.

Yea! The absence of a good coffee shop (especially after the "little" Blue Roost was flooded out) reminded me of my first 30 some odd years in the neighborhood, and not in a good way.

I'm eating a chocolate marble muffin leftover from this morning right now and it is SO fresh and delicious. Linda is a genius with baked goods. I really look forward to trying everything they make with their expanded goods and menus at their new location.
