A weekend in New York City won’t be a good weekend unless you spent it with your girlfriends in your favorite brunches place. Just kidding. But a good avocado toast with a cup of coffee is the best recipe to start with.
In New York there are many great place to eat and drink, and I’m a person who has a hard time making decisions. Deciding which coffee shop I want to go with friends can be a fateful decision for me, and I hope that for you the next list will be a bit less difficult.

This cute little space I discovered by walking around the streets of Nolita, looking for my friends who got lost on the way to meet me. The outside blue-turquoise door caught my attention when I passed by, so I decided to get in. The place is very cozy, and they offer a day menu and dinner menu. The price of the food is below the average in New York, and they offer variety of drinks.
