"This writer strongly encourages all lovers of bread, pastry, and coffee to pop into L’imprimerie and guarantees you’ll have a lovely little time. And lastly: yes, they have WiFi."
"Joy = cereal bread + honey + une tasse de café."
"I have always been a morning person; up early, down early, and I love bread. It kind of felt natural to bake and to be on a baker’s schedule. Bread also has this power to bring people together and to get them excited (it’s like Scruff!). And if you have ever kneaded bread, there is nothing more beautiful than dough: the smell, the shine, the elasticity and the texture. Giving then birth to bread with its sound, smell and taste, you can’t beat that." -Gus Reckel, Mouthfeel Mag
"Gus Reckel is the lanky French longbeard behind L’imprimerie; he arrives at 4:00 a.m. each day to start baking. The little cafe opens early — after one month in business, you’ll already find customers queued up at 6:00 a.m.
On this strip of Myrtle, cell phone and sneaker shops are ubiquitous; good luck finding a baguette. Reckel feels that he’s filling a neighborhood gap. “It is not just hipsters who like this,” he says. “We have customers who work at [Wyckoff] hospital, Latino people, all the people like good bread.”"
"Lately, Bushwick has become an unstoppable force in the Brooklyn dining scene. Now it’s about to add a French bakery and cafe to the roster. L’imprimerie is set to take over an old bakery-turned-print shop that’s been untouched for 60 years. It comes replete with a 100-year-old coal oven for freshly baked breads and an impressive coffee program designed by Brooklyn-based micro-roaster Parlor Coffee. If you’re in the neighborhood looking for a croissant and espresso, this is your spot."
