Bone Shaken

March 31, 2009


Food gets me in a tizzy! If you live in NYC and haven’t gotten bone-shaken yet, Boneshakers is a yummy little sandwich n’ pastry café in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It’s totally vegetarian, mostly vegan, and is as cute as a button on a messenger-biker’s fanny-pack. It’s a beacon of glimmering light on an otherwise desolate street just near the BQE. Their hand-drawn menu is clever, and the selection does not disappoint. I asked one of their hip employees which ‘knuckle’ sandwich I should get if it were my last day on earth. She recommended the big, bad Magnus which is a veggie patty, tempeh bacon, spicy aioli, lettuce tomato, and sprouts on toasted rosemary focaccia. For dessert I had to try each of the amazing chocolate chip cookie, moist cupcake, and the banana choc-chip muffin. The muffin was your typical muffin, but the cupcake and cookie were outstanding!

Tattoos and bicycles are not on the menu, but there are plenty of them to be seen! So, if you’re into that sort of nonsense, definitely check out this spot. It was fun, yum, and I’ll certainly be back.
