Between middle-of-the-night wakings, round-the-clock feedings and early risers, moms and coffee tend to be an inseparable duo. If you’re enough of a coffee connoisseur to seek out an experience beyond a standard cup of java, there’s no place like Brooklyn. These eight spots, located throughout the borough from DUMBO to Prospect Heights, are sure to exceed even the most discerning latte-loving mom’s expectations, and welcome the kids with open arms, too.

Iris Cafe

20 Columbia Place, Brooklyn Heights

What's In It For You: Uncovering a timesaver always makes us happy, and Iris Takeaway is a multi-tasker's paradise. Order up your java at the back counter, then stock up on the market's artisanal provisions, including Iris' signature granola and organic produce.

What's In It For Them: There's plenty for little ones to look at while mom's waiting for her brew, and Iris even has a play kitchen where they can occupy themselves. Kids are most definitely welcome!
