About Breukelen Coffee House
This quaint coffee nook opened it's doors on Oct 2009 which has caused such a splash that The New York Times newspaper took note... This is not your average dark coffee house. As you walk in this this well lit space, a calming affect is immediately felt due to the warm exposed brick walls and smiles from the barrista down to each of the owners-Leeza, Jason and Frank!!!

A new patron can't miss the hypnotic aroma of fresh, fair-trade organic dark drinks to be served hot or cold. My favorite is the CORTADO which is a gentle mix of a couple of shots of espresso and perfectly steamed milk served in a small depression style glass. Also, there are several types of organic muffins bursting with natural fruit and nuts, bit size perfectly shaped Macaroons and large old fashioned style cookies!!! Yummy.....

Franklin Park is showing the Britain vs. USA game now!!!

I am here at Franklin Park since they are showing the, FIFA World Cup series, on a projector screen in the garden and a ten dollar Stellar beer, Dutch Boy burger with Fries Special at Dutch Boy Burger. The momentum has been increasing by the millisecond and now the game has begun and this spot has standing room only. Whoa!!!

I recently learned of an ugly urban legend that Americans don't watch the World Cup which is crap. Here in America, there is nothing but appreciation for this game. Trash Talking against the rival Britain team has hit an all time high!!! Even some of the patrons here who are American are even routing for other Non-American teams. Being a newbie fan of soccer and watching this world cup will give me the best opportunity to learn about the best players,beginning in a kicking short span of time!

So come on down and watch the entire FIFA World Cup series on the screen in the Garden, showing until 4pm and sample this great food special, along with happy hour offering $4 dollar beer specials.!!!
