Urban Vintage is an unconventionally elegant boutique café. A large space, it has expansive windows adorned with long drapes, Victorian couches, a piano, and vintage paraphernalia all around. Besides being a coffee shop, Urban Vintage is also a thrift store, selling home décor accessories and furniture. Families, students and freelancers come here to sit in the comfortable couches, sip their coffee or tea and work, read or chat, with a low-key Billie Holiday-esque soundtrack in the background. It’s a great place to pick out an original present for your friends and family too. As for the food, they serve organic and vegan pastries, pressed sandwiches, salads and gourmet desserts. The coffee is top notch, made from their locally roasted, Fairtrade organic House blend from Uganda, provided by Crop to Cup roasters. They offer a full espresso bar and specialty house iced teas. So, if you’re a Clinton Hill resident, or ever find yourself in the area, Urban Vintage is the place to go to escape the busy city and find yourself in a comforting home-from-home.
