A reader sent in these photos of Tugboat Tea Company, a newly-opened coffee and tea shop at 546 Flatbush Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. The Brooklyn Paper previously wondered about the curse of PLG coffeehouses, noting that “hipper options have opened in the neighborhood in the past 10 years, only to later close or change focus for reasons both benign and outright bizarre.” (Case in point: K-Dog and Dunebuggy, a popular spot that closed in 2011; nearby Blue Roost Petite Café, which eventually moved into the K-Dog space, closed this summer.) But so far it seems like Tugboat is a hit in the neighborhood, and the Brooklyn Paper quotes the owners feeling confident about their PLG arrival. So who’s been?
