The Narrows Coffee Shop is an odd place. Doesn’t open early, never open on a Sunday but has great potential.
It sits in an enviable position down on 100th Street and 4th Avenue in Bay Ridge…. almost close enough to touch the magnificent Verrazano Bridge a mere three blocks further south. And on Friday last, we finally got to test their skills at the Egg & Cheese on a Roll test.
How’d they do? Well as in other places the coffee was the big let down, being another meh in an increasingly long line of mehs. The breakfast however, was pretty good. We opted for the addition of potato on our breakfast rolls and that served us well. The seasoning was a little lacking in my view, although my cohort on these reviews insisted it was pretty good.
It was tasty and filling. We were offered the option of 1 or 2 eggs which is nice. The roll was a little lightweight in my view, but held up in the end. Inside, the diner is on the small side, but it was easy to find a table [ it was still earlyish, 8:00 am], but was filling up with locals by the time we were leaving.
