There’s a new java spot on Atlantic Ave, and the owner has some local Brooklyn roots. Loretta’s opened 7 weeks ago on the north side of Atlantic at #407, between Nevins and Bond.


The eponymous owner of this new chillout spot is part owner of the two Ozzie’s in Park Slope, and features their coffee. The spot feels serene with its keylime pie inspired design. I also love the Amsterdam photograph on the wall.



Lorretta features all the standard coffee shop trappings and more, including coffee, tea, chai, espresso, bagels, oatmeal, granola, croissants, muffins, scones, sandwiches, cookies, cakes and pies. Whew! They also have free Wi-Fi and offer half priced coffee from noon to 2 p.m. It’s easy to miss Loretta’s extra large, sunny deck out back. Too bad the season is rapidly changing!

Has anyone else been to this new hangout?
