PPL is a cafe serving specialty seasonal coffee from 95 RPM Roasters, a variety of Shizuoka Japanese barley and black teas, and organic matcha from Kagoshima. Tomo Takasugi was born and raised in Japan and is the owner of this coffee and tea oasis located in Williamsburg. He originally started PPL as a clothing brand that transformed into a coffee shop based on his love for coffee. Inside the cafe are plant species of all shapes and sizes lining the walls, counter, ceiling, and corners - basically our dream space to enjoy a hoijicha latte and a slice of vegan banana bread. PPL is currently only taking orders from the to-go window Monday to Friday 8-5pm and Saturday to Sunday 9-5pm, but there are a few benches out front too.
