The Cutest Cafes in NYC

New Yorkers take their coffee seriously so it’s no surprise there are plenty of spots to get your caffeine fix ! With so many options, you may as well go to the cutest spots then right? As I explore more of the city I will be adding to this list but here are the cutest cafes in NYC I’ve come across so far! (All of these are located in Manhattan)

1. Remi Flower & Coffee

What could be cheerier than combining your morning cup of Joe with the smell of fresh flowers? Perfect latte art is always a sure thing here with one of their floral inspired drinks.

2. Cha Cha Matcha

With matcha having become a really popular caffeine alternative to coffee, by now you must have heard the phrase “I love you so matcha.” Cha Cha Matcha has locations in both L.A. and New York with their signature tropical, pink and green interior.

3. Blank Slate Tea + Blank Slate

Blank Slate Tea is the matcha version of  Blank Slate where they are more about the coffee. Both spots are adorable, but I love the plush pink seats and whimsical design on the walls at Blank Slate Tea. I had a really tasty pink hummus toast too!

4. Maman

Maman means ‘mother’ in French and is the outcome of the founders recreating their childhood memories in the kitchen. It’s a great stop for coffee or lunch and some locations even have a full bar. French countryside chic is the best way to describe the decor.

5. Urban backyard

A small coffee shop located in Nolita that is devoted to sustainability. Delicious coffee, tea and speciality drinks as well as desserts.  I had to try the macarons and bite size cupcakes!

6. Hutch & Waldo

It’s nice to have a go to spot on the Upper East Side. This small Australian cafe opened in 2016 and has all the down under breakfast staples. Curb your avocado toast and flat white craving here. The cafe has open air seating in the nice weather which I love.
