Located at 274 City Island Avenue, Clipper Coffee opened it’s doors back in September. We just had a chance to stop in for a latte and muffin this morning, and love what they’ve done so far with the space. Offering several seating options, this new cafe looks to be a welcomed addition to our borough’s island neighborhood.
I opted for a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a blueberry muffin. The coffee was good- and strong! I’m writing this after making it through the 2pm slump (and having pasta for lunch!) and still going strong. Money well spent.
If you walk to the short set of stairs in the back of the cafe you’ll find a cool little space where there are cheap used books for sale- or you can just sit and read to the little ones on the rug in the kid’s corner while you enjoy your latte.
Speaking of kids, Clipper Cafe is also currently hosting Kid’s Yoga and Storytime sessions with Frog Foolery- classes can be purchased on a drop in basis or with a 4-pack at a discounted rate.
