Boho night owls, yuppie families and suave gay couples commingle at this cool Bay Ridge café, located in the old Brooklyn Trust Company building. The ornate, century-old wall carvings, imported from Belgium, might stir up a hankering for espresso, but since this is Bay Ridge, you can also get a creamy root-beer float, a hefty slice of house-made cheesecake or panini.
