Occupying a corner on a desolate strip of East Williamsburg’s Woodpoint Road, Tar Pit Cafe inhabits a neighborhood with few businesses of any stripe much less coffee shops, and as such must be a godsend to the locals. The shop is tricked out with a slow drip cold brew chemistry set on one wall but otherwise is on the sparse side, with just a handful of window seats facing out onto the aforementioned majesty of Woodpoint Road. Despite the cafe’s small size, people sit at the window stools and work for hours at a time using the provided wifi, nibbling on a croissant or a muffin, or read on the antique couch along the back wall.
