Cappuccino On The Bay: A Slice of American Apple Pie and Italian Tiramisu, Too!

The new Cappuccino on the Bay cafe at the corner of Avenue Z and East 17 Street was clean and dimly lit enough for a private after-dinner snack and pick-me-up.

The barista-in-chief stood at attention behind the counter, ready to take our order when we walked in. But he made his way to relax at one of the cozy tables as we gleefully perused the elegant dessert display packed with cheesecakes, tarts, and pies.

Both the cappuccino and the coffee were fresh and tasty, a rare find for a quiet, late-night cafe, where final brews can sit for hours. The cappuccino was lukewarm, but with the frothy milk cap, I warmed up to it. Our drinks were accompanied by a slice of blueberry crumb cake, which was just crumbly enough on top, with a moist, blueberry-interspersed cake on the bottom.

As a quiet spot where you can go for an after dinner chat, Cappuccino On The Bay satisfies. It’s even worth a stopover once you’re finished watching a movie at the UA Sheepshead Bay theater. You and your dessert partner will be glad you chose this place over the few other sweet choices available.

Cappuccino On The Bay is open 7 days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. On the weekends, it usually stays open until about 12 a.m.

  1. Sounds pretty good. The concept of quality dessert and good coffee gets tossed around pretty liberally by restaurants and diners. Most often though, both turn out to be sub par. For me the test would be the Tiramisu since it varies wildly in quality from place to place. Pretty funny about the misspellings on the menu, I’ve seen that quite a bit even in upscale places. I guess they don’t have a spellchecker on their computer.

  2. Great headline. Reminds me of the 1800s campaign slogan. “Tiramisu, and Tyler, Too.” Or maybe I’m just being too big of a history nerd.

  3. Whoa! I see it in the pic, now. I guess the spellchecker in somebody’s brain was turned off then. At least they didn’t drop a “P” also, making it… Ape Pie!
    Nooooo!

  4. Brian: You’re definitely a nerd. If you were rowing around on a lake, I’d tip your canoe. (Get it?!!)

  5. There are days I wake up and say to myself, “Why wasn’t I born a nerd?”.

    We welcome all supposed nerds, but would you please do us a favor and add references or links to all of these interesting comments that need extra research…Brian, I couldn’t figure out what this 1800’s campaign slogan was about.

  6. By the way, I actually had to check to see if “rowing” was the correct term in the case of canoes. Who’s the nerd now, Brian? WHO?!

  7. By way of explanation, it’s pronounced “tip a canoe”. I’m told, once explained, jokes are no longer funny. Though, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t funny beforehand.
