I often tell people that I love so much coffee that it is probably this dark juice that is flowing through my veins. I have been drinking coffee since I was a teenager: I love the smell of the freshly ground beans and the strong taste an espresso has, but not the bitterness that is sometimes in the bottom of a cup. So it was with excitement that we went to The Mill few times as we were in Long Island City. This quaint joint with its rustic feel serves artisanal coffee, sweets and sandwiches in a relaxed atmosphere. They have good espresso and macchiato, but if you are not into coffee, you can opt for a tea. In term of sweets, they have few, like the pistachio and agave cookie I had one time or the Lamington, an Australian dessert, that is a sponge cake with jelly, surrounded by chocolate and coconut, one of Jodi’s favorites that is hard to find.
The Mill is a cool place, perfect for a good beverage or to satisfy a sweet craving in an area where there are not that many options. So if you are in LIC, near Court Street, stop by!
Enjoy (I did)!
