Madcap Cafe is a tiny all-day spot in Carroll Gardens with a little menu that doesn’t really stick to one cuisine. They have dumplings, meatballs, a few salads, and a couple of other things like baked pasta and flatbread sandwiches. We wouldn’t recommend a full meal here, but if you need a snack or coffee in the middle of the day, this is a fine option. There are a couple of tables and some seats in the window, and there’s also a little bar in the corner where you can get some wine or a cocktail after work.
Madcap Cafe is permanently closed.
