Bedford Stuyvesant Neighborhood Guide: Part II, Daily Press, Brooklyn Kolache Co, and Pilar

Here's the first part of the guide!

1. A friendly, airy little coffee shop worthy to hit up before hopping on the C or S: Daily Press. They have movie nights and game nights, and amazing spicy cheddar-chive scones (baked in Brooklyn by Colson). The staff is really cute. And they're right by the Franklin C train. 505 Franklin Ave. Website here.

2. For kolaches, a German-Texan comfort food, you must go to the Brooklyn Kolache Company. A kolache is a sweet, fluffy bun (kind of like a hot dog bun or a hawaiian roll) stuffed with savory or sweet fillings. They have a variety baked in-house daily, but the best savory by far is the sausage jalapeƱo and cheese, and the best sweet is the lemon curd. Another huge plus for this place is that they have two large rooms and a back yard so there's almost always a place to sit down and get some work done. 520 Dekalb. Website here.

3. For awesome Cuban food: Pilar! They recently opened in this larger location and the food is insanely good. We love the cod empanadas, the tomato and avocado salad, the Cuban sandwich (of course...and it has just the right amount of cheese, not oozy-queasy, but not dry), and the vaca frita with its accompanying ridiculously delicious simple white rice. 397 Greene. Website here.
