Whistle while you work. Well, in my case this is generally true, and on a gorgeous morning such as today, I can feel spring in the air!
I am not a coffee drinker, but I do enjoy having a cup of tea or hot cocoa most mornings. Recently, it seems like I have a plethora of options, both old and new and coming soon – I stopped at one today. I can not resist things with chocolate in their name, so for the second time (at least) since they opened I went to Little Brown Chocolate Bakery & Coffee, which opened within the last month on 85th and Lexington. (For Nutella lovers-make sure to have that added to your cocoa).
Some of my other Upper East Side favorites include M. Rohr’s, Viand, Le Pain Quotidien (I love that there are three locations on the Upper East Side that are very local to either my home or the Warburg office on 76th and Madison). Great places to meet for a power breakfast before I head to the office to tackle a busy day are Café Bouloud, Three Guys or Saint Ambreous. If I’ve been in midtown early in the morning, on my way north, there’s Nespresso Boutique Bar and the two other Le Pain Quotidien locations to stop in at.
Oh, and coming soon, “Untitled”, a new Danny Meyer restaurant opening at the Whitney – can’t wait to go!
So, if you live or work on the Upper East Side, what are your favorites? Or, if you want to live near any of these fantastic places, let’s chat, perhaps over a coffee sometime.
