Fabiane’s is a French cafe two blocks from the Bedford L stop that serves a variety of coffee, breakfast, salads and sandwiches from 730am-11pm everyday. It’s at the heart of the busiest tourist strip in Brooklyn, so prepare to see plenty of long cargo shorts and fanny packs. On the plus side, this makes their outdoor seating a prime locale for people watching.
