Colador Cafe: Brooklyn: Bed Stuy

I haven't tried any of the food yet because the menu is all vanilla, but honestly, the food I've seen on people's plates looks great.  The coffee is okay, with raw sugar, simple syrup, honey, Equal, Splenda, cinnamon and nutmeg available on the counter.  You can ask the barista for soy milk, but it never tastes right in the coffee.  The service is hit or miss, and they have wi-fi available (ask the barista for the password), but it's spotty.  There's a decent restroom for customers.  I think the biggest draw is that you can order beer, which is rare enough in this neck of the 'hood.

The place has a nice feel, a good amount of seating, and supports local artists by displaying their works, ads and cards.

I actually like Colador best when it's closed, due to the artwork on the gate:
