About Poetica

UNCOMMON GROUNDS

From the farm to your latte, our beans are meticulously selected from around the world. Whether you sip a classic drip or our signature drink, The Poetica, we aim to inspire with every drop.

WE DREAM OF COFFEE

Our founder, Parviz, has dreamed of owning his very own café since he was 12-years-old and watched his father work as a coffee wholesaler. Today, every cup poured from our five locations 251 Smith St. Brooklyn NY and 1233 Prospect Ave. Brooklyn and 561 Lorimer Street, 240 Prospect Park West and 529 Atlantic ave Brooklyn and 622 Caton ave is a tribute to that legacy.

AN URBAN OASIS

Step inside our warm, cozy cafés and let the world slip away. Relax in our lush, shaded yard under the blue Brooklyn skies. Let us be your nook, a home away from home where you can work, gather, and unwind.

THE GIFT OF POETICA

Treat your favorite coffee lover to a gift card and share the Poetica love.

COFFEE AS POETRY

Carefully crafted, roasted, poured, and then finally, savored, we compose each brew as a poet does their words. It is our ultimate muse.

THE SWEET LIFE

Indulge in delightful bites, like quiches, croissants, and pastries from our neighbors at Le French Tart, and more.

Drink coffee. This is life eternal. This is all that youth will give you. It is the season for coffee, roses and drunken friends. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
