The Bean isn’t the only cafe expanding into a recently constructed Williamsburg building: Morgan-stop favorite Swallow Cafe opened an outpost at 493 Driggs Avenue last month. This location has the same rustic vibe as the East Williamsburg one, though seating is limited to just a handful of stools. On offer: coffee brewed from Counter Culture beans, a variety of teas, cookies (including some vegan options), pastries, and some wraps and sandwiches. There was a chill Yeasayer vibe going on when we stopped in this weekend. Here’s another look at the space.
