Homecoming is an adorable cafe-flower shop fusion in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The owner, Vanessa Chinga-Haven, had always dreamed of opening her own cafe, and when she finally got the chance she decided to draw upon her background in floral design and create a unique experience for her customers. Her husband, Scott Haven, suggested that she add home decor to the mix, and the concept evolved organically to include candles, tableware, books and other items that Scott and Vanessa would want adorning their own home. The couple strives to bring products to the neighborhood that their customers can’t find elsewhere in Greenpoint, and take pride in curating a selection of flowers, beverages, snacks and decorations that keep their loyal customer base coming back for more. Many of the items are crafted locally in Brooklyn, but the true emphasis is on quality and one of a kind finds. Homecoming also takes great pride in their coffee, doing extensive research and training a team of top-notch baristas. Chinga-Haven sums the ethos of the shop up simply: “It’s special because we care.”Show lessRead more
