Ange Noir is the ultimate haven for those who work from home. This cafe is sort of hidden in’s near Roberta’s, but off the beaten track on Varet St., so I’ve never seen it super full. You’ll always be able to find a comfy spot with your laptop. There are wide tables and lots of space, it's not too loud, AND they have unexpectedly amazing sandwiches! A great variety and pretty inexpensive. Also, Ange Noir has lots of live music. Every week, it holds open mic night and local acts on the weekends. It’s really the perfect place to go at night when you want to get out and enjoy yourself without partying.

If I could give one place a negative brown feces laden star it would be here.  Thank you for giving YELP another subscriber, because I signed up JUST to hand you your feces.


MY fellow co-workers and I WERE loyal customers for the past 2-3 years. As we discovered this place during residency it became the quaint coffee shop with a great atmosphere that we thought we could frequent for as long as it existed. 


Tonight we were asked to leave.

After requesting their wifi password, we were asked if we were going to buy anything. Not more than two minutes later, had a woman with a NASTY attitude and tone approached us.

She begins with," I know you are our customers......."

"...but if you are not going to buy anything, you have to leave."

There were only two other customers in  a place that seats about 30 people. Perhaps we did not buy anything....YET, however whats the rush?  If you know we are your customers, we frequent the establishment, and it is not busy, why are you going to chase us away for a MEASLY, PETTY $5?

Not only had we already spent MUCH MORE than that in the past, but it was a shoe in that we would continue to spend our money here time and time again in the future.

WTF type of business practice is that?!  Ignorance 101?

I've noticed the decline in customers over the years. It use to be a pretty packed place and if tonight was just as packed perhaps we could have understood her BEGGING us to buy something. However, it is clear that we are not welcomed here and left shortly after. 

I cannot recommend this place to ANYONE. It's a damn shame that they are so quick to ask customers to leave from and already EMPTY establishment. Perhaps this is why they had to ask us to purchase something, because they can afford to turn customers away.

Consistently wonderful and completely charming. Favorite cafe in Bushwick.
