From the tipline: "I live in Kensington and we've got this new coffee shop/restaurant out there called the Oak and the Iris. Last week, they gave out free coffee to people going into the Fort Hamilton Parkway F train stop. This week, another coffee shop in the area, the Crossroads Cafe, was there with a full-on coffee cart. Like the kinds you see in Manhattan. Then the Oak and the Iris had a man giving out some kind of free cake. No coffee, just cake. So, in Kensington, it seems we have a coffee shop war brewing." [EaterWire]
