The warm and welcoming Petee’s Café officially opened a few weeks ago at 505 Myrtle Avenue (between Ryerson Street & Grand Avenue). The long storefront is bright and cozy, designed with a bold black-and-white diamond-patterned floor; earthy green, pastel pink, and gold hues; and lots of fresh flowers. A row of eight to ten small tables are lined up against the wall on the right while a long marble counter on the left displays a tempting selection of pies, each presented under a shiny glass dome.

A small outdoor area in the back provides a handful of additional tables for diners as well as garden space for the staff to grow fresh herbs and veggies to include in their menu offerings.

“Clinton Hill is a beautiful neighborhood full of heart and history, and we are thrilled to make it home to Petee’s Café,” said Co-Owner and Head Baker, Petra “Petee” Paredez. “Our neighbors have been so welcoming and have already made the café their own. We look forward to serving Clinton Hill for years to come!”

“Petee’s Café and their delectable house-made pies are a great complement to Myrtle’s food landscape,” said Meredith Phillips Almeida, Executive Director of the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Business Improvement District.

Along with fresh fruit, chess, nut and custard, and icebox pies ($6 to $7 per slice, $35 to $40 whole), Petee’s offers a variety of savory options, such as seasonal quiche, chicken pot pie, and shepherd’s pie. The café also serves soup, salads, and sandwiches made with housemade bread and cold cuts from The Meat Hook.

Committed to supporting local businesses and farms, another locally sourced product available at Petee’s Café is the coffee—roasted right in the neighborhood by Parlor Coffee. The café serves a full coffee/espresso menu all day and of course, at breakfast, when customers can pick up homemade coconut-pecan granola or fresh buttermilk biscuits with sausage, eggs, jam, or honey.

BKLYNER stopped by the new café on Saturday afternoon and tried the chicken pot pie and strawberry rhubarb pie. Both pies had an authentic homemade look, texture, and flavor, with a light, flaky, buttery crust.

Under its delicate golden top, the chicken pot pie ($12) was filled with large pieces of roasted chicken, ramps, carrots, and potatoes. The fresh side of greens were lightly dressed with a delicious miso honey dressing that gave them lovely hint of savory and sweet flavor. The strawberry rhubarb pie was a slice of summertime—a perfect combination of sweet strawberry and slightly tart rhubarb enveloped in light layers of buttery goodness.

Coming soon, Petee’s Café will also begin offering beer, cider, wine, and seasonal craft cocktails to accompany its sweet and savory treats.
