Brooklyn Nibbles: Williamsburg Edition

Ella Cafe Open 1

1) Ella Cafe is now open on Bedford Avenue between N. 7th and N. 8th Streets. We found it to be a good space with a very nice and chill outdoor space in back (photo below). The front of the cafe has a long bench along the wall where people were hanging out drinking espresso, etc. The menu is comprised of organic and natural choices, both sandwiches and full entrees ranging from a Portobello and Vegetable Sandwich to Fish Stew, plus sides like Organic Mustard Spaetzle. Business was so surprisingly brisk this weekend that by late Sunday they were out of printed take out menus and a few menu items.

2) The space formerly known at the Toll Brothers sales office for the North8 Condos at N. 6th and Bedford has a new tenant. Yesterday, there was a temporary sign in the window saying women's shoes and accessories, some clothing hung in the windows and boxes scattered around. It was hard to say whether it's more of a pop-up, temporary type of store or something more permanent. It looked like more of the former than the latter.

Found this in TimeOut:

Ella Cafe Chef Oleg Lyaskoronskiy (Gramercy Tavern) turns out an easy menu of takeout-friendly fare, like organic greens topped with duck confit or prosciutto, at this Billyburg café. Free Wi-Fi and French-press coffees and teas are an added bonus for the laptop set. 177 Bedford Ave between North 7th and 8th Sts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-218-8079)

I have really enjoyed this place. The coffee drinks are great and they use biodegradable plastic cups. The canopy in the rear is a wild sculpture.
