the old brooklyn parlor

With its comforting menu of coffee, pastries, and ice cream, The Old Brooklyn Parlor is filling a void in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Objective Subject worked with the owner, Nick Haven, to establish the 1930s Brooklyn aesthetic with dense typography of classic New York geometric sans serif and custom hand-lettered script.

flat white

A flat white is a coffee beverage prepared by pouring the creamy steamed milk from the bottom of the jug over a single shot (30ml) of espresso, it is most commonly found in New Zealand and Australia.

this is how i like my coffee (for future reference). the foam has to be so thick and creamy, that when you drop a sugar cube into it – it doesn’t sink. none of this bubbly watery foam on top of tepid filter coffee crap (no thanks, mugg ‘n bean).

speaking of coffee, i love the look of this australian run coffee bar in london called milk bar, done by an australian design company called a friend of mine. ‘milk bar’ is an aussie term for corner shop – somewhere you run to for a litre of milk and perhaps a loaf of bread. funnily enough, they have another coffee place in the same neighbourhood called flat white – both are top rated for their coffee & atmosphere.
