Greenpoint is brimming with excellent coffee. However, finding it later in the day, when numerous cafes close just as you need that caffeine boost, might be more difficult.

If you’re searching for a fast cup of coffee in Greenpoint after 5 p.m., skip Starbucks and Dunkin’ and head to one of the neighborhood’s small coffee shops for some of Brooklyn’s greatest java.
