If you’re passing through the North Side of Williamsburg, stop by Cafe Beit, an artsy barista-owned establishment that recently reopened in March. Don’t let Beit’s basic interior deceive you — this place can whip up some top-notch espresso, tea and baked goodies. There’s a quaint 600 square-foot outdoor patio to boot.
