We’ve told you where to ride your bike (or Citi Bike) in Greenpoint. Now we’re going on a tour of Bed-Stuy, a neighborhood quietly overflowing with great food, coffee, drinks and dessert (R.I.P. SCRATCHbread, though). Start the day with coffee, grab a hearty meal, eat a delicious cupcake, and then go out for drinks and dancing—all without swiping your Metrocard once.
Curious about where to pick up a Citi Bike? Find one near you on their website. Got a favorite spot in the neighborhood that you’d like to share? Let us know by leaving a comment.
They’re brewing Counter Culture coffee at this Bedford Avenue spot, where you can also grab a chia pudding, avocado toast or frittata for all-day breakfast. The lunch menu is also on point, with a grain bowl, smoked carrot sandwich and refreshing salad. It’s the perfect place to fuel up for a day of biking and eating.

If you’re going meatless and dairy-free, the best food in the neighborhood is at Toad Style. Grab a mushroom bánh mì or barbecue pulled jackfruit sandwich and feel good about it: Everything is made in-house aside from the bread, including a selection of great nut cheeses used in their grilled cheese and eggplant parm.

When pizza is what you’re after, you can’t beat Speedy Romeo, where they make the mozzarella and ricotta in house. From a grilled artichoke appetizer through the marinara pie that comes with anchovy to a cheeseburger, they can satisfy any craving you’ve worked up while riding around town.
You need dessert, so stop by Clementine Bakery for a raspberry-lavender cupcake or cinnamon roll that’s totally vegan and organic. If you’re traveling with a dog, they’ve also got treats for your pooch.
This Bed-Stuy bar and music venue just celebrated its first anniversary, but it feels like a place that’s been around for ages. With its warm staff, fun house cocktails and welcoming parties (go for their ‘80s/’90s party Everybody, Everybody and iBomba), this is always a great place to end your day.
