I have always dreamed of living in New York – a place with what seems like endless possibilities. I love how busy it is, and how your day can be filled with non-stop meetings, hopping from one cab to another. But there are also those quaint gems where you can sit, take a moment, and enjoy a latte by yourself. Below are just five of my favorite places that require a visit each time I’m there.
Happy Bones // Little Italy
A cozy, minimalistic coffee shop with delicious lattes and cookies. The perfect place to grab coffee or to spend an afternoon catching up with friends.
Egg Shop // Little Italy
If it isn’t obvious, this place is for all the egg lovers out there. You can choose between a variety of sandwiches & bowls- my personal favorite is the Spandex 11- poached egg, miso quinoa, avocado, pickled carrot & farm greens- so flavorful and delightful, you’ll want to go back again soon.
The Line NYC // Soho
I first saw this place on several blogs and wondered what it was- was it someone’s magical apartment? Was it a hotel I could afford? I finally had the opportunity to visit this dreamy space that has the most perfect light shining through- it’s a must see showroom adorned with the perfect clothes, furniture, prints & more. You’ll want to pack your packs and move right in. Who wants to join me?
Bakeri // Williamsburg
A hidden gem with delicious pastries and the most adorable patio with luscious greenery- my favorite time to go is in the late afternoon when you’re alone in what feels like a secret garden. Bring a book and enjoy some quiet time.
Momofuku Milk Bar // Midtown West
I first saw photos of this ice cream years ago and needed to know immediately what it was- it’s now a must have every time I visit NY- cereal milk soft serve covered with corn flakes. It’s so delectable, you’ll want another one right after you finish.
