Molasses Books is first and foremost a used bookstore and literary event space in Bushwick - but they also serve coffee and have a bunch of folding chairs and tables. This is an incredibly charming choice for a coffee date with someone who probably did better in school than you did. Do you know this about them for sure? No. Can you glean it from their photos of them on Fulbright teaching English to school children in Brunei? Yes.
