The Little Owl

Greenwich Brunch Places, The Little Owl NYC

The concierge at The Lowell helped me discover some new brunch places and one of those was The Little Owl. I wanted to explore some new places in Greenwich Village and I am so glad I came across this gem. A wonderful corner restaurant perfect for weekend brunch classics and some Mediterranean inspired dishes. I went for the safer option, the burger but the coffee, desserts and ambience were really nice. I would highly recommend to those looking for something with a local touch in Manhattan followed by a walk up Bleecker Street!



Joe Upper West Side

My first morning in New York was just amazing. I was staying at a friend’s at the Upper West Side and ended up taking a very long walk up Columbus Avenue. The fondest memory is of discovering the lovely Joe’s Coffee. It is a chain but still a lovely cafe with great coffee and a great buzz. The staff is super friendly and being an outsider, this place just hits home for me!

Sant Ambroeus Upper East Side

I believe I should start blogging about my New York adventure by starting to write about Sant Ambroeus, the gorgeous cafe in the Upper East Side right next door to The Mark. Credit goes to the Hotel Manager of The Mark for guiding me to this gem. I don’t think it could have gotten any better.

The cafe is the epitome of what you would see in movies. A classy spot for the New Yorkers to stop by to pick up their morning coffees and iced lattes on the way to work or back from their morning work outs. The cafe was buzzing with business meetings and friends meeting up for breakfast.

I was headed to a meeting at Madison Avenue right after so I decided to order some breakfast and quite a big one. I opted to have the pancakes along with a latte. The good thing was they were not greasy and came with a good portion of fruits taking the guilt away from me. I had heard that coffee would not be amazing in New York but the latte was actually good. The only thing that did surprise me was the size of the latte more geared towards a flat white.

The location is amazing and the cafe really did introduce me to the life on the Upper East side – couldnt have asked for more! Definitely a taster of the local life.
